Firefox still without sound

Hey everyone!

I just updated Firefox to the current 46.0.1 and I am still not getting any 
sound out of it (just tested youtube). With the update several other packages 
were updated too (including alsa), so it seems as if there has been some 
progress in terms of sound.

Using $SEARCHENGINE I could quickly see, that Firefox without sound after an 
update under FreeBSD is a (well) known issue. Strangely enough there does not 
really seem to be a solution out there that is easy to implement or put into 
the ports/packages.

What's going on there? Or have I just missed the memo about Firefox and the 
sound output?

Best regards,
