Bug 623444 and friends are in the process of landing.  Right now we've got the cubeb nsAudioStream backend enabled by default and backends present for OS X and Win32.  They've only been on mozilla-central for a couple of days, so they're nowhere near adequately tested for wider exposure on Aurora yet.

This bug tracks a patch to disable the cubeb nsAudioStream backend by default on Aurora.  It's a simple pref flip, and returns us to the old backend that has been in use up until a few days ago, so it's extremely low risk.
