[solved] Re: Audio from browsers correctly routed (2 audio cards, same box)

I just configured a multiseat computer (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Multiseat_configuration) using my squeeze machine and help from the pt-debian-users list. Very nice, now I can share it with my wife. Everything is working ok, except for one detail: I have no idea how to route audio from browsers (ffox and chrome playing youtube, for example) to my wife's usb audio dongle. In order to get audio separated to both of us, I got an audio dongle with mic and line out jacks. With mplayer and vlc playing multimedia files I can get audio routed correctly to the dongle. So this is not a driver-hardware-kernel question. The dongle is ok, I just need to figure out how to tell the browsers to use the dongle, not the onboard audio.
Vlc and mplayer have extensive configuration options, and it was easy to choose. But browsers seem to offer less choice for configuring. I searched about:config in ffox, no good. Chrome doesn't even have one.
