Okay, am running Firefox 38.0.6 now. Still won't play FLAC or MP3 formats. Go figure.

I ran across this today, so you may want to check those two settings.

In case the link dies, it's basically go to about:config and do these settings:

Code: Select all

media.gstreamer.enabled: true
media.gstreamer.enable-blacklist: false
