Pulseaudio, Firefox, Flash 9

Upgrading to the latest flash plugin (9) kills audio in Firefox. Awesome!

Based on the PulseAudio information on
and the library provided by revolutionlinux, it took only a couple of steps to get things working:

cd /usr/src
cd libflashsupport
sudo ./
sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make
sudo make install

Then restart firefox.

It probably helps to have /etc/firefox/firefoxrc contain the line


...and to have /etc/asound.conf contain the lines

pcm.!default {
type pulse

ctl.!default {
type pulse

pcm.pulse {
type pulse

ctl.pulse {
type pulse

...but libflashsupport is the magic bit.
