Firefox over JACK in Debian Testing

Hi, here's the thing:

AFAIK Firefox lacks JACK support (in the sense that you can start JACK
and then Firefox and then, automatically, all I/O audio-ports Firefox
generated, appear as available JACK connections, let's say), even
more: that seems to be a design/development decision - meaning: will
not change.[1]

It's possible to build Firefox with such support - some people do it -
but Mozilla will not do.[2,3]

Is there any Debian package that can serve this purpose?

By other side, I've seen in Arch a different approach: using a JACK
plugin for ALSA and ad hoc configuration file to make kind of a
"bridge" that sends I/O audio through JACK. It works fine.[4]
Is it possible to do something similar in Debian (testing)?

In short, I'm looking for the best way to play I/O Firefox audio
through/over JACK.
Any help to solve this I will thank it very much.
