Can you hear sound on other websites using Firefox?

Does the issue still occur if you start Firefox in Safe Mode? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode

How about with a new, empty profile? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic+Troubleshooting#Make_a_new_profile
Summary: do not works sound → Sound does not work on vkontakte.ru

Yes, I hear sound on other websites using Firefox.

Nothing from list above does not help. I turn off all of plugins, but it does not solve the problem. 

Reinstalling does not works.

I remember that last spring (version 3.5.8 - 3.5.10) in FF, this sound was played correctly. After some update it's gone ...
I Have read several forums, and it became clear that the problem occurs at all, without exception. It seems that the FF (for security) somehow blocking a certain value "autoplay"...

P.S. sorry for my english. I'am from Ukraine...

Please, try to find when it was broken, using builds from ftp://archive.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/
Ever confirmed: true
OS: Windows 7 → All
Hardware: x86 → All
I've got response from VKontakte techsupport to my letter regarding this bug. According to them this problem is caused by wrong content-type of sound message. They are gonna fix it.
==> Tech Evangelism, as this is not Firefox bug.

Can someone else who originally saw this please verify that it's fixed for them, too, ideally using at least two versions of Firefox and using a non-Firefox Gecko browser?
