I am running KUbuntu version 15. I have the latest version of Firefox and Chromium installed. For Firefox I went through the steps to install Flash player, but or Chromium flash must be embedded. The problem is with Firefox, and I'm pretty sure flash player is the source of the problem. What happens is, when I open a new tab, the volume shoot up all the way, and I have to click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of the screen and turn down the volume. This even happens is I'm watching a video, and click on the streaming bar to jump forward in the video.
For Chromium this doesn't happen. I can open as many tabs as I want, or jump forward or back in a video, and the volume is unchanged. If I decide to change the volume, it stays at the level I set.
This is why I'm pretty certain the problem is with flash player, because if it was with the software running my sound card, it should happen with both firefox and chromium.
So my question is, is there a way to use a different version of flash player in firefox? Or is there an alternate version of flash player?
