When a JavaScript calls the alert() method, Firefox send out a BEEP in my headphones. Does any one know how to stop that sound?

I am running the newest Fedora Linux with Firefox 3.6.16 using Kde as desktop environment.

Mute your sound. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 10 '11 at 1:54

IMHO, You need to execute this command:

xset b off

This command will stop all the bell sent to your headphone or to your cpu.
