the general response from the Seamonkey newsgroup seems to be, something is wrong with my laptop, or my install of Peppermint. yesterday:

> fwiw, both my flash and pepperflash plugin/addons are up to date

But that doesn't mean they are working as designed.  Most of my sound
problems come from *flash* not properly releasing the device when finished.

ps auxw | grep flash

next time your sound device isn't responding properly, then kill -9 the
PID of the flash process.

but that is gibberish to my artist brain, my output earlier when yet another chromium sound failure occured:
