firefox bug, sound gets garbled and repetitive...

I run slackware 13.0 with firefox 3.5.2. The sound works great for the most part. But sometimes after the browser has been open for more than a few hours, and after a few hulu and youtube visits, I start up another movie and the sound is all jarbled and echoy. So I just 'pkill firefox' Run firefox and restore the sessions and everything is back to normal.

Just wondering if I can troubleshoot this and try to prevent it. Seems like it's just a firefox bug. Has anybody else experienced this?

I ran into the same thing, turns out I just needed to upgrade my flash plugin. Check your version by opening "aboutlugins" in the Addressbar of FireFox, then grab the latest.
