I am listening to online radio (flash) but if I start off another video clip locally or remotely, the video won't play until I either change the audio output of the clip to non-pulseaudio or close the online radio (stop won't work).

There are also no applications shown in Sound preference window.

This is not happening in Ubuntu, anyway to fix this? I am using Fedora 15 now.

Sounds to as if your flash plugin is actually not using Pulseaudio. One of the key benefits of Pulseaudio actually is that applications can share the audio more easily.

Try creating the following file as .asoundrc in your home directory (yes, with dot):

pcm.pulse { 
    type pulse
ctl.pulse {
     type pulse
pcm.!default {
    type pulse
ctl.!default {
    type pulse

Then restart your browser, to make sure flash picks up this change.
