Doesn't firefox use pulseaudio for sound?

If so, then there's no need to change any alsa settings, just use pavucontrol or cli pulseaudio commands.

Update

last problem also solved:

Code: [Select]
echo "amixer set "Master" 80 unmute" >> ~/.X.d/alsa
echo "amixer set "Mic" 10 unmute" >> ~/.X.d/alsa

This fixed the muted state at start.

I decided to uninstall pavucontrol to make more lighter the boot, pulseaudio just works fine alone.

Hi julcar
... Now, the only problem to solve is that the laptop starts muted, I have to use alsamixergui to unmute all of the channels to get the audio working.
Based on what I did here:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22145.msg138620.html#msg138620
I think you left out the following steps (after setting your volume levels):
Code: [Select]
sudo alsactl store
echo alsactl restore >> /opt/bootlocal.sh
echo usr/local/etc/alsa/asound.state >> /opt/.filetool.lst.
filetool.sh -b

the alsactl store could be on shutdown.sh?

You could if you want to and you change volume levels a lot. If you have volume levels you are comfortable with then just
running  alsactl store  once is sufficient.
