I replaced my web browser menu item to EXEC /usr/bin/firefox so I  
don't bother with MythBrowser at all. It still "feels" like MythTV  
since I launch it from the myth menu and Myth comes back when I am  
done with the browser. :)

You need to play with your alsa (or whatever sound system you're  
using) settings to get the sound to work in Firefox. I never got mine  
working in x86_64. I switched to i386 and it started working. I'm lazy.
