TOO QUIET! Watching videos online in Firefox are so quiet on my speakers and headphones now. I thought it was a problem with my hardware but internet explorer and itunes are perfectly loud. How do I fix this?

Please don't force me to use Internet Explorer again...

See:

You can click the Volume icon on the Windows Taskbar near the clock and click the Mixer link at the bottom to open the mixer.
You can adjust the volume level for each application in that window, so make sure that Firefox is not muted or set at a low level.
Current Firefox versions use the plugin-container process to run plugins, so you need to check the volume setting for the plugin-container process.
You will only see the Firefox program or the Plugin Container in the Mixer if you are on a website that plays sound.
