It may be a setting in the Firefox configuration.  My daughter has a
similar problem on her machine - no sound in the browser (it's an
older version of seamonkey).  Try putting "about:config" in the URL
bar and filter for sound - see if something there looks funny.

If not, you might check the Mozilla bugzilla and see if this has been
reported, and if not, you know what to do.
