Firefox killing the sound on my Ubuntu box

without comments

Tonight I encountered a rather strange problem on my Ubuntu box. While doing nothing special on my machine, just surfing and listening to music and suddenly there are no sound?!?

Doing a quick search on I quickly found the solution. The problem seems to be Firefox, killing the firefox sessions and restarting the alsa-utils did the trick for me, and voila the sound is back :D

The howto get the sound back is found here:

BTW: starting firefox again did not cause any problems ;)
