> The current Firefox port uses PulseAudio as the default audio backend

Only if you have pulseaudio package installed. This is what upstream (Mozilla
Corporation) maintains for desktop Linux and works best in GNOME/KDE/etc due to
integration with panels/bars/widgets.

> But as on FreeBSD, the default audio backend is sndio.

Source? sound(4) exposes OSSv4 API with additional features provided via
virtual_oss package. In firefox it's supported since ports 0c61cc4d7a7b.

> What do you think about changing PulseAudio for sndio as the default audio backend?

See bug 218188 and pkg-message. On a fresh system "pkg install firefox sndio"
already uses sndio by default.
