100% agree.

You don't use Pulseaudio? Current Firefoxen have ALSA enabled for Debian,
but their ALSA support seems to have fallen prey to bitrot. I didn't
manage to get them working.

If you insist in not having Pulse (I do), there's apulse (the package
is named likewise, I think). It plays LD_PRELOAD tricks to trick FF
into believing it's talking to Pulseaudio. I had success with that.
