System has 2 active sound servers that are probably conflicting and causing audio issues

  Sound Server-2: PulseAudio v: 14.2 running: yes 
  Sound Server-3: PipeWire v: 0.3.25 running: yes 

You can choose either:

  • Disable the pipewire systemd socket and service to continue using PulseAudio
     systemctl --user mask --now pipewire.socket &&
     systemctl --user stop pipewire.service
    (KDE requires pipewire base package so uninstalling it is not possible for this DE)


  • Install manjaro-pipewire metapackage to get the additional dependency files for Pipewire to replace PulseAudio

Thanks, i replaced PulseAudio with pipewire now my firefox audio issues (and other issues) are gone.
