Firefox 57 and alsa


Recommended Posts


I like the fact that Funto's firefox 57 is using alsa instead of pulseaudio.

I would like to get rid of pulseaudio in other distros running firefox 57.

What should I add/remove from mozconfig (I read that old option that removed pulseaudio and enabled alsa is not working)?

Thank you

Hi, noone. If you downgrade your firefox enough, let's say to 48.0. You can work with alsa, instead of pulse.

This is a developer move from mozilla since pulseaudio provides better sound architecture for the project or so it was said.

More information about it, see:
