I think the recommended solution is to give direct control of the sound card to JACK, and configure PA to access it through JACK. I recall getting this to work briefly when trying to use Rosegarden. The Arch wiki seems to have some information on this. That might be where I read it… can’t recall.

Speaking of bug reports and Mozilla, just came across this one from a few years back (I recall reading it before) while setting up Gmail SMTP in Thunderbird. In this case, at least a few Mozilla devs argued for doing the right thing (see Ben Bucksch’s comments), but were overwhelmed by those who wanted to enable Google to keep being evil.
