115.0,2 works fine formedia.cubeb.backend settings.
However, I have not yet investigated whether 115.0 is working properly on its
own or if it is the effect of the patch adopted in bug270436 :)

(In reply to Graham Perrin from comment #14)

In order for Firefox-115.0,2 built with default options to reliably output
sound, media.cubeb.backend=oss setting is required.
Since 114, the about:support page has gone 💩, so use the method written in bug
261898 comment 8 to identify the backend actually used.

If media.cubeb.backend is not set, pulseaudio is used.
If pulseaudio fails to start, it will try to use jack.
If the connection to jack fails, it tries to use sndio.
If sndiod is not started and sndio cannot be used, it will not fall down to the
next destination.
If SNDIO is disabled, it can reach oss, but it is not, so it needs to be
prioritized by the configuration.
