Firefox ouputting to 5.1 sound

User Help for Mozilla Firefox

Hey everyone,
So I've been using firefox for a while, but recently bought a new computer that came with onboard surround sound. Previously I had a Craetive card that had software to upmix all stereo sound to whatever you needed. But now, the Realtek software doesn't have that same feature.. although stereo music mixes up to 5.1 but sound from firefox doesn't - So Pandora or anything like that only come out in 2 channel sound. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Firefox does not output anything to sound, other than the 'bing' when Quick Find cannot find the text you are looking for.

It's the media plugins that play the sound. You'll need to look for the options in your media player plugin software or your sound card drivers.
