You didn't mention which version of Firefox.
With firefox-26.0-2 from the Fedora 18 repository your no-sound issue
with those sites reproduces.
Then I installed apulse, a PulseAudio emulation for ALSA, but the
problem persisted. Looking at /proc/$(pidof firefox)/smaps the
libpulse libraries are not mapped.
Which Firefox are you trying, and how are you trying it?
https://github.com/vitvegl/apulse-rpm (for the spec file)
dependencies: gcc-c++ gcc-sh-linux-gnu cmake alsa-lib-devel glib2-devel alsa-lib glib2
