Just this morning, I started up my system, and lo and behold, my sound 
was working....   At least it's now working with YouTube pages...   I 
tried an online live radio page,, and it wouldn't 
play....   any thoughts on this?  Could that be something in my Firefox?

Anyway, at least I have my sound on youtube working....   but I WOULD 
like it to do all that it's supposed to do.   :)
