You didn't mention this, but you have two sound cards?
And you are trying to make the second card the primary card?

Sorry about that. You are correct.
There are 2 sound cards in this system.
Here is the relevant output from lspci -v

The C-Media CM8738 is "/dev/dsp1".
I was not really trying to make anything the primary audio card.
Just want the web browsers to use utilize the same audio output device.
