After upgrading to firefox 76.0-1 my microphone sound is not streamed away in Google Hangout Meet sessions.
The microphone works, I can see the various vumeters that Google Meet shows you indicating that the mic is working but my students can't hear me and I can't hear them although they appear unmutted in the session.

Going back to firefox 75.0-2 makes Google Meet sound work again as expected.

Additional info:

* package version(s)

Firefox 76.0-1

Steps to reproduce:

Install and use firefox 76.0-1.

Neither nor works, but works on the official release and my firefox-nightly build.

Should be fixed in firefox 76.0-2. Can you please test again?
