I just installed Kubuntu 9.10 and I have the same issue. No sound in
Firefox/flash, but I had no sound in Audacious, too. In Audacious I
fixed it by selecting another playback device (since I have a USB head
set), so I thought that was the problem. I never used Pulseaudio on
Kubuntu and it got installed when I updated. Since GTK apps use
Pulseaudio I installed PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol) in which
you can select a default device, selected my sound card and that fixed
my problem.

Removing pulse audio all together fixed it, too. I never used it before, I don't see a reason to use it now. To remove pulse audio just type:
sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-gconf pulseaudio-module-udev pulseaudio-module-zeroconf
