This is fixed in the latest nightly

and

This patch, however, is going to be uplifted to all Firefox versions, including the release (v57) and ESR (v52) channels.

And from the Reddit thread: "We'll try to get it upstreamed to 58 beta, 57 release and 52 ESR as soon as possible."

After attempting these workarounds: 1) setting security.sandbox.content.level to 2 or less; and 2) uninstalling x32 and x64 Firefox, deleting the program folders from Program Files and Program Files (x86), cleaning the browser and OS temp files, rebooting, installing Firefox Quantum 57 x64, doing a Refresh Firefox; the no-sound issue persisted.

After reverting from Windows 17063 back to 17046.rs_prelease.17118-1403, and rebooting (which took less than five minutes), sound was again played in Firefox 57.0.2 (64bit).

They have a patch that works on recent Dec 22+ Nightly yes but is it really the best thing when recent Win10 insider preview builds was the cause of the sound issues in Firefox and other applications.

Well James seeing as I am actually using the latest Win 10 fast ring build and this does fix the problem then I would say yes

17070 was just built 3 days ago, so 17073 would likely have been built today. Which means that it would only go out to Insiders on Wednesday at the earliest, and only then if there are no blockers, which these days there often are.

Short version: continuing not to hold breath.
