PulseAudio requirement breaks Firefox on ALSA-only systems
Upgrading Firefox to version 52 on an ALSA-only system breaks audio on all websites.
PulseAudio has apparently become a hard requirement in the latest official build of Firefox, but since PulseAudio is (due to its design) not viable on some systems, this renders Firefox useless as a general-purpose browser.
The upstream code still contains ALSA support. Please re-enable it on Ubuntu. I have read that Arch Linux has already done so.
