[kde-linux] mp3 playback within Firefox?

Hi all. First post here.

I've been running KDE for a while now but haven't done much personal
configuration. One small problem I'm having is that mp3 files don't
play back within Firefox like OGG files do. What's the KDE specific
way of getting this to work?

I understand that Firefox isn't the KDE browser but I use it on other
platforms and would like to use it successfully within KDE. My system
is Gentoo 64-bit, mostly stable except for a few apps. KDE Ver.-4.4.5.
I've attached a list of packages currently installed.
