This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

This API is available on Firefox or Firefox OS for installed or higher privileged applications.


The disable method is used to turn off the radio.

Each time this method is called successfully, the disabled event is fired.


var request = instanceOfFMRadio.disable();


It returns a DOMRequest to handle the success or error of the operation.


var request = navigator.mozFMRadio.disable(100.0);
request.onsuccess = function () {
  console.log("The radio is turned off");

request.onerror = function () {
  console.log("Something goes wrong!");


Not part of any specification.
