I was curious if there's a way to boost the audio level for a browser, specifically Firefox.

To be used with YouTube videos, etc.

I know that VLC player has that audio booster in the program, so I'm not looking for a media player that will do this, just a program that can raise the audio level for Firefox.

Ff does not, I think, "play" the videos, but the file is played by different applications; the sound should be adjusted with the controls available on those.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

It depends on what browser plug-ins you have installed.

Those could be called ActiveX, codec or media plug-ins.

So what you need to do is access the browsers plug-ins menu and it should list what plug-ins you have installed.

Most web sites that have video players have a volume control located some where near the embedded video screen, it's commonly located below the video viewer.

It is a slider control, slide it to the right for increased volume.

If volume is still low, check your sound card's mixer controls for the levels of each slider, the speaker icon can also open up audio properties and adjustments can be made there as well.

Hope this helps.
