Default firefox audio on NetBSD 9

Is there anyone on the forum who's done this recently? I had a working setup back on NetBSD 7, but have been using other OSes since then. Today I managed to get NetBSD 9 to install and run on my little Atomic Pi (Intel, not rpi) - altho it was a trip with UEFI.

Firefox 77.0 + pulseaudio + alsa seems not to be working like it was on version 7 of NetBSD. The command "pacmd list-sinks" is not seeing any audio devices, although I have a C-Media USB audio stick plugged into the Atomic. Supposedly the driver for a USB audio stick is uaudio, but it doesn't show up in a modstat listing, and can't be found by modload. Do I need to compile this driver? - I would think it's always a default option.


BTW: Youtube with FF77 seems fairly decent on the Atomic (speed-wise) using NetBSD9 (but lame w/o audio).

Default No hotplug - now I remember

OK, so now I remember there's no USB hotplug in NetBSD. Plugging the stick into the port before booting shows /dev/uaudio now. I also see it in dmesg output, and "pacmd list-sinks" shows it. Still no progress on FF front tho - will chime back in when I see what's what.
