iceweasel-hardened runs iceweasel through firejail with additional parameters 
and browser preferences.
>From what I gather of firejail's man page, the lack of audio is due to the 
firejail --private-dev parameter creating a virtual /dev directory that does 
not know about the existing physical audio devices.

The simplest option would be to use the non-hardened iceweasel for times you 
require audio.
Alternatively, you could copy-paste the iceweasel-hardened script as another 
name, such as iceweasel-hardened-audio, removing the --private-dev parameter. 
This version would enable you to have audio and better than vanilla security 
without altering the hardened version reserved for regular usage.
