Hello
there is a gui control for pulse audio, pavucontrol from nux repo or pavucontrol-qt from epel repo.
The sound is probably muted on the browser.
Can you gat audio using vlc, mplayer or any other media player ?
The command line uses pacmd and pactl
The output of pactl stat for me is

Code: Select all

$ pactl stat
Currently in use: 7 blocks containing 89.3 KiB bytes total.
Allocated during whole lifetime: 133333 blocks containing 337.4 MiB bytes total.
Sample cache size: 0 B
Anything about pulse module not loaded ?
On rare occasions pulse fails to load at boot but a log out and back in cures that for me, no need to reboot.
Some examples
To mute the master volume

Code: Select all

pactl set-sink-mute 0 1
To unmute the master volume

Code: Select all

pactl set-sink-mute 0 0
Raise volume

Code: Select all

pactl set-sink-volume 0 +5%
Lower voume

Code: Select all

pactl set-sink-volume 0 -5%
Also pulse can raise the volume above 100% for really quiet audio
Hope this helps
