Unhappy embedded video on facebook on firefox has screeching for audio


Have a 64 bit machine running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 3.7 GB memory intel core i3 cpu m 380@2.5ghzx4. Using Firefox 43.0.4 with no add ons enabled. On Facebook Youtube videos play fine, both sound and video. However clicking on an embedded video has issues. The video plays fine but the sound is just a long screeching noise. I can change the volume of the sound. Does the same in HD and SD. Is not limited to a single video. Every video for the last month at least does it. It was working fine then stopped. I applied system upgrades (they had been ignored for quite a while) hoping that would fix it but it did not.

try the same with chromium (it uses a different flash engine) or simply (temporarily) uninstall the flashplugin used by firefox and see how it goes with html5 only.
(just for troubleshooting, this is not meant as a solution)
