libcanberra should be in thunderbird's list of optional dependencies for sound support.

Additional info:
thunderbird version 102.9.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
0. Install thunderbird, and ensure libcanberra is not installed.
1. Open Settings
2. Enable Incoming Mails > Play a sound
3. Hit the Play button

A minimalist DE like sway may be required to reproduce this bug, if Gnome, KDE, etc. depend on libcanberra.
