Have you tried stopping firefly, and restarting it? (As I could not conclude this from your post)
ps -aux | grep daap
Should give the process is running. If you only get the grep process, mt-daapd isn’t even running.
To check why firefly might not start you can check the logfile. (/var/log/mt-daapd.log?)
Also, if the log shows nothing or no clues, try raising the debuglevel up till 9 in your configfile (/etc/mt-daapd.conf?)
