ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 7792
[UPDATE REQUEST] FireFox 52.0 disables ALSA unless compiled with --enable-alsa
Last modified: 2017-10-17 18:02:16 MSD
FireFox 52.0 disables ALSA audio playback unless compiled with --enable-alsa.
FireFox 52.x disables ALSA audio playback unless compiled with --enable-alsa. This has been confirmed to be the case with the firefox-esr52 package. Please correct this!
Confirmed this as a problem on Rosa 2016 in general.
Verified that adding --enable-alsa fixes the problem.
I just looked at the FireFox 52.2 thing, enable-alsa is still not enabled. Please fix!
Please Fix this! I Am still having to do Builds of firefox myself to fix this! This is an easy fix! ENABLE_ALSA 1

I agree, this should be fixed. Alzim, plaese take care of it.

Firefox использует pulseaudio. В Frefox специально была отключена ALSO из-за огромного количества ошибок. Разработчики отказываются поддерживать ALSO. Я не хочу ломать firefox-esr52. Жалоб от пользователей на этот браузер нет.
Firefox uses pulseaudio. In Frefox specifically was disabled ALSO due to the large number of errors. The developers refuse to support ALSO. I don't want to break firefox-esr52. Complaints from users on this browser.
I see. They (FF developers) want to drop ALSA support completely anyway.
Zombie Ryushu, maybe you can use NewMoon (aka PaleMoon) browser instead? It's built with ALSA support. I myself prefer NewMoon because it's just an old good Firefox, not ruined by new design trends.
No I can't. Using FireFox ESR 45.9 already breaks functionality on a small number of Sites. Mageia does Enable_Alsa 1 and FireFox works under Mageia just fine. I'm not asking you to change firefox-esr52, only firefox. Pulse Audio breaks a large number of my Applications when running, including Mednafen and others.
I have never seen Any errors or crashes due to ALSA.
I cannot voice my disagreement loudly enough with making FireFox Pulse Audio only.
Вы можете собрать в свой репозиторий Firefox c нужными вам опциями.
You can collect in your private repository Firefox you need options.
Thats a terrible solution. That means I have to maintain a completely separate fork, and urpmi will over write my changes whenever a new build is published creating a huge headache.
Thats not an acceptable solution to me.
The support for ALSA does not impeed Pulse Audio
