The programs I use to listen to music (vlc, audacious, mixxx, etc) all
have a way to configure the output and I can choose between Jack,
Pulse, and for some also Alsa.

But how exactly do you configure Firefox to use Jack and not
Pulseaudio? I could not see anything in the FF settings dialogue box.
Is there any setting in about:config? And what about Chromium?
