Why would we disable pulseaudio?
There you can find --enable-alsa therefore as I understand it "our"
Firefox supports pulseaudio and/or alsa.
I misunderstood the build options regarding sound support, so asked the wrong
question. In simpler terms, it would have been "can I install 52esr and still
have FF sound working without installing pulseaudio?"

How about just testing if it works. I would expect it.
Because "just testing" is not that simple. Firefox rpms are either/or, no
opportunity that I'm aware of to have more than one at a time, and it's not
merely a single rpm to replace; plus there is profile management to consider. I
currently have 11 for Firefox and 6 for SeaMonkey on this system alone.

This touches Gtk which is completely out of my
This was mentioned only as a reason /why/ I'm not using 42.3 on this
installation, thus /why/ I asked about toolkit used.
For the openSUSE Leap Firefox versions currently
shipped this is not an
issue as Firefox still uses Gtk2 there.
Good for people who can live with a single Firefox version, which is not me.
Also, Firefox is hardly the only app used in TDE/KDE3/KDE5 broken by GTK3 upstream.
