Can you try other audio apps beside the skype, if they're affected?
Comment 2 Andrea Poli 2012-06-07 08:01:07 EDT
I tried Rhythmbox and, if the gmail tab was in background, the same problem appeared.

It looks like that if you reinstall gtalk plugin the problem disappear but I'm not sure because now I'm using empathy and thunderbird instead of gmail directly.

I see...please try it in firefox safe mode with all plugins disabled (firefox -safe-mode).

It seems that using firefox in safe mode the audio works properly. 

I currently use google-talkplugin x86_64 

The installed addons are:
- adblock plus
- italian dictionary
- dnssec validator
- firebug 1.9.2
- foxy proxy standard 3.6.2
- gmail favicon notifier 3.11.3
- js deminifier 1.0.7 
- listit
- open in browser 1.11
- empty cache

I see, looks like a problem in the google-talkplugin, not firefox itself.
