You really need to provide more detailed information than "doesn't seem to work".
Certainly wouldn't know what you mean by "Pulse hardware".
pulseaudio has per-application settings so it might just be configured differently for MPlayer and the browser (assuming Firefox even uses Pulseaudio, I have some doubts about that).
