Google Chrome and Firefox Flash audio/sound on Linux x86_64 bug workaround

I have recently switched from Mozilla Firefox 5 to Google Chrome 14 (beta). Same Flash bug as in Firefox -- Flash audio is somewhat crippled (see the link for more details).

OK, enough of that, I am sick and tired of that crap. But let's be productive! I went ahead and automated the process of working around that stupid bug.

Now all I need to do is go to and follow the instructions. And this is one-time-only, now I don't need to repeat it after updating Firefox (or Google Chrome).

Hint: you can do that, too, if you are affected.
