I've noticed ever since upgrading to Lion that when I plug in or pull out the headphones while my web browser [Firefox 13.0] is running (maybe when sound is actually playing?) the volume controls lock and I get no sound. I can either restart to get sound again, or sometimes, if I wait about 30 minutes, sound controls unlock and I get sound back.

This is very strange, I know, but I didn't notice the issue until I upgraded to Lion - it's been present through all the patches they've sent out. I haven't been able to isolate a specific behavior or scenario that triggers it, but it definitely has to do with plugging in or removing the headphone from the jack.

Thanks in advance!
