Maybe, maybe not.  It's only been a couple of days and I've yet to
really stress load Ff.  Fear not, if I do get crashes, I'll report here.

Which I've added.  After reading various posts/complaints in multiple
places.

Agreed.  In this case, it doesn't need to.  Well, not yet.

I only administer a handful of machines, and this problem affects only
one of them;  All the others had PA installed when they were first set
up (bare metal installations of Debian), so no problems there.

The machine it does affect is the one that I routinely use, which has
been in use for longer than PA has been around.  I /could/ install PA,
but am reluctant to do so, since sound works here ATM and I'm concerned
that installing PA may cause issues for me.

My gut feeling/guess is that installing PA on 'virgin' hardware is fine,
by _may_ result in odd behaviour when installed on a system successfully
running ALSA and, TBH, I don't want to find out and (maybe) have to go
through another PITA session of getting sound working properly again.

Time and life are short, and spending time getting sound working isn't
something I want to waste the two on.

I'm already resigned to the fact that I'm having to use two browsers
anyway, since certain plugins I find /extremely/ useful only work in a
XUL environment, whilst others only work in a WE environment.

As I said last time;  Sometimes, you just can't win.
