Sndio and Firefox

Using sndiod with browsers works fine including vivaldi & falkon.

Does this even works for firefox, if so how ? Or does firefox force pulseaudio ?
Can I force alsa or sndiod?
I tried “cubeb” settings but in vain …

You could try the official binary and see if that works for what you’re trying?


Yes, @jonathon’s suggestion is a good one. Try downloading the official version into your home directory and see if it has the support you need. You could also try the official flatpak.
