Question Lenny 32-bit Iceweasel no sound

[SOLVED?] I rebooted and it's working. So idk what broke or fixed it.

I have alsa, pulseaudio and alsa-oss installed. The sound cards are Xtreme Audio PCI & onboard HDA Intel. I prefer Intel since it uses 5.1 surround, & b/c the Creative card has no open source driver.

I could watch Youtube videos w/sound, play ET and ETQW, etc. All of a sudden iceweasel won't play the audio from these flash videos.
One suggestion was to change /etc/iceweasel/iceweaselrc from ICEWEASEL_DSP="padsp" to ICEWEASEL_DSP="aoss". It worked for others, but not this box.

Sorry, idk what info is needed to resolve this issue. All help's greatly appreciated. TIA

Flash uses gstreamer's settings for audio and the like, so open up gstreamer-properties and set your prefered sound output there.
