What type of flash have you installed? Iff I understand you correctly you don't have any sound when playing flash (e.g. youtube) but sound works fine otherwise?


If you have flashplugin-nonfree installed already, you can try this

It could also be that your other apps are holding the sound device hostage. Try closing pigeon and your music player before opening your browser.
