With the later Mozillas they need pulse-audio to be able to produce sound.

How did you get around this for the likes of Firefox. First install apulse if your puppy doesn't come with it. Then I create a script which goes like this

Code:
#!/bin/sh
           apulse /opt/firefox/firefox

Make it executable I place this script on the desktop which opened the browser and I had sound on youtube. The part after apulse with be where your browser is installed to could be /usr/bin/firefox/firefox

The point is this works like a convenient desktop shortcut.

Better to make it /usr/local/bin/firefox or something, so it is in your path. Then it could also be started from a terminal, or a file association, or another program.

yep it could be apulse /usr/local/bin/firefox
the point is that the apulse (if you have installed) goes in front - whatever the location of the browser.

To really avoid pulseaudio, there's Slacko64-700rc3 & Seamonkey64 2.49.4 (the latest) - needs gtk3 but not pulseaudio.

True if you are using 64bit hardware. I am not 32bit all the way.
