Wait. "11.0.x" is a beta relase, use it *only* if you have a 64-bits 
Debian system... show us the output of "uname -r" just to be sure.

"contrib" repo does not seem to have an updated version of the plugin :-?

To avoid any collision, you can unpack the tar.gz which contains a single 
file "libflashplayer.so" and drop this ".so" file under your iceweasel 
user's profile ("~/$HOME/.mozilla/firefox/[profile].default/plugins"), 
then load again the test page (http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/
about/) to check if the latest version is now displayed.

Once you have the latest plugin installed, just perform some tests with 
online videos and see if you get any improvement with your audio issue:

- If newer plugin works better than the older, just do nothing :-) 

- If the problem still persists, then you can delete "~/$HOME/.mozilla/
firefox/[profile].default/plugins/libflashplayer.so" file, return to the 
same point you were before and keep searching for another solution :-P
