I have a recent installation of Fedora 22 (4.1.3-201.fc22.x86_64) and firefox (Mozilla Firefox 39.0.3). The problem is with firefox -- there is no sound when playing youtube videos.. Everything works OK with chrome browser.

Hi there,

I encountered this a while ago, and this because the new update require a pulseaudio to be installed you can check if you have it with these command:

pulseaudio --start --exit-idle-time=-1

If you don't have it yet install it with this:

apt install pulseaudio

Hope this helps.
