Default Audio weirdness on CentOS 6.2 with flash?

Hi List,
I have an ASUS G73S laptop with our favorite OS installed and all
up-to-date.
Sound has always "just worked"
When I use the Preferences>Sound app I can setup the hardware, input,
output and was overall very impressed.
One can check each speaker and the laptop has a front left and right and
also has a bass speaker which seems to be connected to the left rear.

The various players seem to work fine e.g mplayer, JuK, VLC media player.

Recently I wanted to play a movie off the internet and so out came Firefox.
Imagine my surprise as I hear only the background music from the rear
channel - the front left and right appear to have disappeared.

When I plug in some headphones, it seems that the phones only pick up
right rear and left rear - front left and right are gone (laptop
speakers are muted due to headphones being plugged in)

So one cannot listen to audio from internet via flash player........

I have the high definition digital audio disabled as I understand this
is for the HDMI audio system which I have not played with.

I think alsa and pulse audio are installed.

Not sure what other info can be of help.
Anyone else have this front / back swap issue?
Anyone have any ideas why no front channel audio output on flash/firefox??
What if anything allows these various audio channels to connect / cross
connect?

TIA for any suggested reading - my google foo has failed to locate
anything recent that might relate to CentOS 6.

Finally found it - the gnome-volume-control app actually spawns the
Preferences>Sound dialog and under the Applications tab the various
running sound apps are shown. The firefox/flash plugin shows as ALSA
plug-in [npviewer.bin] and was muted - simply unmute and all is well.
