The official firefox binaries from the mozilla.org website require
pulseaudio. But there is a wrapper available for it which enables sound
with alsa only.

Someone created a port for the wrapper which I slightly modified:

# Description: PulseAudio emulation for ALSA.
# URL:         https://github.com/i-rinat/apulse
# Maintainer:  
# Depends on:  glib alsa-lib cmake


build() {
        cd $name-$version

        cmake . \
                -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr \

        make DESTDIR=$PKG install

Maybe it should be included in opt?
