Amazingly that still doesn't do the trick.
You mean the artsdsp thing?

Since you think you're using ALSA, can you post the output of lsmod and the contents of your /etc/asound.conf and/or your ~/.asoundrc file(s)?

If it's using alsa, you will allso need chmod +wr for the /dev/snd/*

I have (had) this same problem, but it was solved by doing the 'artsdsp mozilla-firefox' command!

My suggestion, which involves TWO steps, is the following:

STEP 1: check if you have either an .asoundrc file (/home/~/.asoundrc), or an asound.conf (probably in /etc). It's quite likely you don't have either - my slackware distribution didn't have them anyway.

If not, you can try this (VERY BASIC, and quite possibly flawed, file):

        pcm.emu10k1 {
           type hw
           card 0

        ctl.emu10k1 {
           type hw
           card 0

        pcm.dsp0 {
           type plug
           pcm.slave emu10k1
I have used "emu10k1' because you said you have a SoundBlaster Audigy card. If there's a problem, you can search for a more suitable file for your card here.
Save that file to either /home/xxx/.asoundrc, or /etc/asound.conf.

Step 2: in the shell, type:
aoss firefox
replace firefox with the full path of the program if necessary.

Hope that helps. It did for me anyway!!

This might work

This solution sounds too easy but it worked for me....
By default (for me) in KMix the PCM output volume was set all the way down. After adjusting it, restart Firefox., at least, works now.
