# Ubuntu – JACK, PulseAudio and Firefox: Enable JACK for firefox in the near future

Firefox bug #1345661 was closed with "WONTFIX", which certainly will break my current setup in the near future (I play firefox sound through alsa_in:loopback->JACK). I have read that Firefox has JACK support now, though it is not yet stable. Questions:

1. Will JACK support in Firefox be officially supported?
2. Will Ubuntu enable JACK support in Firefox before raw ALSA support ends?

I the answer is No No, how can I reliable restore functionality without breaking JACK? It is possible to run PA through alsa_in, but I guess that would introduce some extra latency, break AV sync, or introduce signal distortion due to multiple resamplers.
