We request the necessary permission, but then don't do anything with it anyway (https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/ce1a86d3b4db161c95d1147676bbed839d7a4732/mobile/android/base/java/org/mozilla/gecko/FilePicker.java#146).

We should either implement that as well, or else drop the permission prompt for audio again.
I initially had troubles finding an app that supported that intent at all, but it seems like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonymobile.androidapp.audiorecorder does the trick for testing.

And unlike the Image/Video capture intents, merely calling out to an app that supports MediaStore.Audio.Media.RECORD_SOUND_ACTION *doesn't* require Audio permissions.
Not absolutely dependant, but the precise patch will need adapting depending on which version of that bug is going to land.
