Firefox sound not working 21.0


Hi!
Compliments for the update! (very fast!)
However, sound in Firefox is not working.
It told me I need PulseAudio, which I downloaded, (tar.xz)
and turned it into an 'addon' succesfully. Easy peasy.
Renamed it, installed it (by rebooting), and it is to be found in /var/4Mlinux.
When I open the addon in /var/4Mlinux, everything seems to be there.
Question is: What's next?
(Sound not working in firefox, still.)
Do I also need Pavucontrol, perhaps?
Many thanks!

4MLinux installs Firefox 51.01 by default. I haven't tested the Firefox 52 series yet.

SOLUTION:
1) Restore the default version by executing in terminal:
Code:
4mlinuX getfirefox
2) Temporary disable Firefox updates in its options.
3) Wait several days when I add Firefox 52 to my distro.

I have changed the name of this thread for others who might have the same issue.

Update:

4MLinux 21.1 (and later) has sound in the Firefox 52 series out of the box.
The workaround for older 4MLinux versions: https://www.mrfdev.com/youtube-flash-player
