Thanks for posting the updated link, JamesC
I have edited the links in my posts on the first page of this thread.
However, people should note that there have been reports of problems with the latest Firefox version(s). See the previous page of this thread. I thought about removing the apulse packages.

The apulse program was only ever a work-around, so people should always experiment (taking precautions) to see what works and what doesn't.

My packages overwrite any pulse libraries so as not to require a wrapper script. This means that any other installed programs that use pulse will also be linking via apulse.

The alternative method is to place the apulse libs in another location and launch via a wrapper script, but this means that the script is then required. One idea is to unpack the apulse libs into the firefox main directory since the executable finds libraries that are there and (I believe) gives them priority.

With latest Firefox though, something else seems to be fundamentaly wrong so work is needed by the apulse author (or the Firefox devs).

Others have provided links to pulseaudio packages. I have some version 2.1 pets that might work in older Puppies. Firefox 54.0.1 with pulseaudio 2.1 worked for me in Wheezy but pulseaudio is a daemon so you have to make provisions to start it with "pulseaudio --start".

Firefox-55.0.3 32bit .sfs for LxPupSc (may work on other "modern" Pups but untested....)

p.s. doesn't seem to be a general Firefox thread so posted here because the .sfs includes a sound fix for Puppy / alsa

If you read the earlier posts of this thread you will see that poster watchdog has provided a package of pulseaudio which works in 32bit TahrPup

I do not use firefox and so I ask to firefox's users: does the fix by peebee generally work to get sound working through apulse with latest firefox and without pulseaudio ?

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=963886#963886

I would try to copy in /root/.mozilla firefox's profile a file named user.js with the following content:

Code:
// sound fix for alsa through apulse 0.1.10 :
user_pref("security.sandbox.content.write_path_whitelist", "/dev/snd/");

@watchdog

I've been using pulseaudio on several (64 bit) pups in my kennel. Since
your suggestion of a user.js file and a apulse pet is simpler and better
in some ways, I decided to experiment. My first experiment is on a
fresh new hard drive frugal of xenialpup64 7.0.8.5

1. Installed firefox 55.0.2 from the repo. This takes care of the requirement
of updated dependencies for recent versions of firefox.
2. Copied the user.js file to /root/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default
3. Installed Oscar's apulse-0.1.10-x86_64.pet

It works Smile

I'll no doubt experiment using fresh frugals of tahr, slacko and Barry's
Quirky xerus 8.3 since this is relatively quick and easy for me to do.

I'll note here that a surprise problem arose using pulseaudio and a
Microsoft LX3000 headset. Couldn't get it to work (but the headset
works fine otherwise as the "sound card"). So this issue is one of the
reasons I'll probably wind up going back to apulse.

More later, I suppose.

Edit: Same procedure and ok result for tahrpup64 6.0.6, but
only using the 4.9.15 kernel. I have no idea why videos "choked" using
the original kernel.

Edit2: Similar procedure and ok result for slackopup64 6.9.9.9
The repo had nothing current or nearly current for firefox so I
downloaded the latest tarball of 55.0.3 and extracted it to /opt
I also had to install dependencies for the later versions of ff.

Edit 3. Chalk up fatdog 710 as another "works ok" with FF 55.0.3

Oscar, why not write new apulse pets that include writing the user.js ?

I have XenialPup64 installed to a USB stick. I use it with an HP Pavilion dv6-6b21he laptop. The pulse audio 1.10 64 bit package provided by Oscar Talks does not work. There is no audio with Firefox.

I did notice that the warning that usually appears below the bookmarks bar regarding potential lack of audio due to the absence of pulse audio has disappeared.

In other words the warning dialogue is gone but I still do not have sound with Firefox 55. Any ideas?

EDIT:

Okay I fixed it. I had used watchdog's suggestion for the user.js file and place it in /root/.mozilla with the profile.ini. That did not work. I moved user.js to the subfolder qbh6evhg.default and all is well. Thank you for the *pet package and the suggestion for user.js.

Another confirmation of what works

I couldn't get online sound with tahr-6.0.6 untilI I installed watchdog's pulseaudio-4.0 pet. I had to junk the puppy for some reason I do not recall. I tried apulse in a new one; suggested as better, but in fact did not work.
So to a virgin tahr-6.-.6, I installed watchdog's again. It is working,
See the link provided by OscarTalks here.
