Guess I have to update my posts on this subject, too: 

Just out of curiosity I logged out of my usual Gnome desktop and logged
in KDE. There I started Firefox and - lo and behold - I had sound both
on CNN and Youtube!
Going back to Gnome, same thing again: sound on CNN and Youtube. I did
not update or install anything between no-sound and sound experiences.
Just changing from one desktop to another seems to have flipped whatever
bit was in wrong state - and it stayed put when changing back to Gnome.

Whatever the true explanation is, I had no sound on flash videos just a
few hours earlier. I also did not adjust anything such as ALSA mixer
settings or the like. It's a mystery to me...
