** Summary changed:

- No audio from webbrowser-app in 16.10 U8 or U7 session
+ No audio from webbrowser-app in 16.10

** Description changed:

  Load the browser on 16.10 in either a U8 or U7 session.
  Browse to YouTube
  Play a video
  Notice there is no sound.  Nor does the browser show in the sound menu/panel.
  
- I've attached the application-legacy-webbrowser-app-.log file which
- shows problems with "unknown pcm devices"
+ TLDR: this is an apparmor confinement issue: on yakkety pulse audio
+ needs write access to /{run,dev}/shm/pulse-shm*, which is being denied
+ by the audio and microphone policy groups. The fix consists in punching
+ an additional hole in the generated apparmor profile for webbrowser-app.

+ It is not anticipated that this change would make the browser’s functionality 
regress.
