This is barely believable. My experience so far was that browsers allow
practically no user control over audio whatsoever.
Given that browsers nowadays are audio/video players, game engines and
whatnot this is ridiculuous, but also understandable, since browsers
are supposed to be everything but the kitchen sink (or "die eierlegende
Wollmilchsau" to use this wonderful German term.
Web browsers are the very definition of scope creep.
You can't expect those things to do everything or anything properly.

In which ff version is it supposed to be available? I will try it but I
won't hold my breath.
