Firefox runing flash video does not ouput audio to USB Headset

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

USB Speakers: 046d:0a0b Logitech, Inc.
Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)
Firefox 3.0.10
pavucontrol 0.9.7-1ubuntu3

Plugging in USB headset, there is unexpected behavior.

Changing the output device in System > Prefrence > Sound to "USB Speakers (ALSA)" redirects all streams to the usb headset except firefox/flash.

A manual non-persistent workaround for this is explained in Answer #56282
pavucontrol is needed ( not included with ubuntu - Bug #179095 ) to have sound output directed from firefox to the USB headset, otherwise built in speakers are used. Also, There has to be a stream (an instance of a program with audio output) running to redirect it to the speakers.
