Using FF with pulseaudio now and this seems to work. Pulseaudio starts
when using FF Hello or watching Youtube (including polkitd and
console-kit-daemon). And test.webrtc.org asks for permission to access the
microphone as well.
On test sites the microphone capture is still defaulting to /dev/dsp0
though (should be /dev/dsp4).

You don't have five-hundred dollars. You have fifty. Sorry, computer foul-up!
