Ubuntu :: Firefox Breaks All Other Sound?

Dec 13, 2010

I've been stuck in the windows side of my dual boot for about a month, I came back over to the ubuntu side and updated/upgraded and ran into this issue: When I log in everything sound related works fine. I can play audio and record audio off of the monitor using audacity. As soon as I start firefox though, all audio breaks. I can't play audio in any other program, recording in audacity fails, etc. Closing Firefox doesn't help, rebooting seems to be the only thing that works. I've already tried purging and reinstalling flash, but that doesn't seem to have had any effect. When starting audacity it throws this error:

bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
Expression 'stream->capture.pcm' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 3653

I'm on Lucid if that is of any relevance. It seems to me that firefox is monopolizing the audio device both while running and after it closes. What is odd is that I've never had this problem before, and all I did was update. I often run audio in firefox and record it with audacity.

p.s. I use pavucontrol to set up recording, and firefox no longer shows up as a playback application when playing audio.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Firefox With Open Sound System?

Jun 24, 2010

I recently installed the x64 rpm of OSS on my Opensuse 11.2 installation (alsa does not have drivers for my lynx card). Sound works beautifully in KDE (login sounds, apps produce sound, etc), EXCEPT for firefox. I can get no sound at all from firefox. I am baffled at why only firefox does not play audio.

OpenSuse 11.2 (it is a pretty fresh install)
OpenSoundSystem 4.2
KDE 4.4 (updated from factory repos)

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In KDE - VLC/mplayer/firefox Still Have Sound

May 26, 2010

I made a recent update to my Squeeze system and got this weird problem. mplayer, VLC and firefox (.....) all have sound. But when I try to run Amarok I get nothing. I looked into the Multimedia panel on the KDE4 system settings, and its not showing any devices at all. Previously it used to show HDA Intel etc., etc. Now the entries are completely blank. How do I get KDE to recognize my hardware? Shouldnt it pick things up automatically?

Ubuntu :: Sound Output Crippled By Firefox?

Jan 25, 2010

I've had problems with my sound that i mentioned in this topic: t=1386194 but noone answered so i started trying things.I've updated ALSA and managed to partially achieve what i wanted to, but other things gets messed even worse. I've get rid of choppy sounds problems and i can get sound from few applications UNLESS firefox isn't one of them.The problem is. If i start firefox first, and open a page that is using sound for example ..... and start a vid. Sound from all other applications is somehow blocked untill i'll turn off firefox. Or, when i start a music player, open firefox, pause player, start vid on ..... i have no sound from firefox.

What's weird is that i started quakelive (a web browser based game), started a movie in vlc, and went to system > preferences > Sound / Programs using output atm tab. And there was no apps at all, and both, firefox and vlc were playing sound. (screenshot attached to show this) How can i make firefox not to 'take' whole sound output?btw.

sudo fuser -v /dev/dsp* /dev/snd/* /dev/seq*

Ubuntu :: Firefox Freezing Videos, No Sound?

Feb 24, 2010

Firefox started acting funny.On most video sites, but not all, there wouldbe no sound.Along with this, some of these sites would also have the glitch that videos would play for about 3 seconds, then stop. If I moved the slider to a different point in the video, it would again work for a few seconds, then stop. If I close FF and try to reopen, I get an error message that it is already running, although if I don't leave it openet that message.I then go to the system monitor and shut down the sleeping FF process, and can then restart FF and the problem is fixed for a few hours.

Ubuntu :: Update To Firefox 3.6.6 - No Javascript Sound

Jul 20, 2010

I have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 from 8.04. It installed Firefox 3.6.6, and now I and many others have no sound in any internet online javascript games nor in anything else that uses javascript for sound on the internet. I also have one site with a small javascript video issue (fails to fully load a gif image that is loaded by javascript).

The upgrade gave me the openjdk for java. I had no sound as described with firefox 3.6.6 and js. I uninstalled that and installed the sun-java6. This did not help. The problem is not java at all. It the fault solely of that version of Firefox. I also messed up someone else's Hardy 8.04 by allowing their computer to also upgrade to this version of Firefox. This was the only thing upgraded- the only change.

Does anyone know how to revert to Firefox 3.5 or even 3.1? I need all the steps. I have to do this in both Ubuntu 10.04 and in Ubuntu 8.04. It is unacceptable to wait for Mozilla to put out a browser update that really works. It may never happen.

I also need to know how to prevent the 3.5 from being upgraded through update manager after I get a working version back.

I found a work around for the Firefox problem in 10.04. that was to install the Google Chrome Browser which does work with javascript sound. That browser is also very fast. I cannot do this for the other computer having Ubuntu 8.04. It is not in synaptic package manager like it is in 10.04. I still want it in the computer that has 8.04 if Firefox can't be fixed.

Ubuntu :: Flash With Working Sound But No Video In Firefox.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop, and I can't see flash in Firefox. I can hear flash, but not see it. I'm not sure when this started, because I haven't been using Firefox in a while. I've been using Chrome but now I want to use Firefox 4 beta (which also has the same flash problem as Firefox).

Ubuntu :: No Sound For You Tube Videos In Firefox After Upgrade To 10.04

Aug 29, 2010

I recently upgraded to Lucid 10.04 from Hardy 8.04, and since then I have no audio when watching You Tube videos in Firefox. I checked the sound preferences and I have sound in other applications, but not for You Tube. Oddly enough, I get sound on You Tube just fine using the Chrome browser, but it's not my preferred browser and I'd really like to get it working under Firefox. In another forum, someone suggested doing a "sudo apt-get install alsamixergui," but that didn't help.Is this some sort of Firefox bug? I googled the problem and others have reported it as such, but I cannot locate a fix. Anyone? Thanks in advance.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Continues To Drop Out Of Flash In Firefox

May 14, 2010

Sound continues to drop out of flash in firefox. Reinstalling flash will bring it back, but it will drop out next browser session. All audio works in other applications. Skype, Last.fm, Rhythmbox, Amarok, Movie Player, etc. Even downloaded swf files will play sound. It's just in firefox, from what I can see so far. I don't know if Steve Jobs flying overhead in a black helicopter has anything to do with it, but perhaps.

Ubuntu :: Firefox, No Sound, Mailto Broken / Thunderbird Related?

Jul 20, 2010

i have recently been having random problems with mostly firefox. the 2 most annoying problems (that work in other browsers) were: no sound on various sites, like videos and amazon mp3 previews. the mailto command would not work.

the fix is 2 part: i installed the standard release of thunderbird 3.1.1 and the firefox mailto problem is fixed. i installed the standard release of firefox 3.6.7 and sound now works fine.

additionally i have removed thunderbird, firefox and related ubuntu brandng from the package manager for the following reasons:above fixes, time and frustration involved in debug.eliminates the chronic application directory rename during updates, /usr/lib/... and softlink change in /usr/bin.allows me to keep up with t'bird and firefox security patches as they are released, i.e. immmediately.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound For Flash Video In Firefox - Kubuntu 10.10

Nov 6, 2010

I am having a problem getting sound to work in flash-videos in Kubuntu 10.10. My system currently has two working sound cards, the one integrated into my motherboard and the other is a USB Logitech headset. After installation, the speakers were set as my default output device which I did not want. I was able to move all the sounds over to the USB headset using phonon. While Amarok works, videos work (downloaded, wmv, avi, divx, etc) I cannot get flash video to work in Firefox. I set up my prefered device as the USB headset for everything in Phonon, but still the sound will only come out of my integrated soundcard (speakers). I'm not sure what exactly I am missing, I set everything up, but still it's a no go. What switch did I miss? I haven't used Kubuntu for a while, but i'm pretty sure this worked fine in Ubuntu 9.04 (when I last used it).

Nov 20, 2009

Ive got the problem that i get no sound with adobe Flash in Firefox 3.5.4 on my Suse 11.2 What ive done: After Suse 11.2 installation i installed Audiocodecs by using 1 click installation from:

Restricted Formats/11.2 - openSUSE-Community

Switched default Sound to USB Device in Sound Options in Task bar.

For sound i use usb speakers plugged in direct to the USB port of my Asrock motherboard. Suse also find the on board Nvidia Soundchip, but i only use the usb speakers. For further test i installed VLC Player. Here i also got no Sound, but Video is still playing.
