This is Beowulf, not Chimaera, but Firefox works fine with ALSA here,
including splitting input and output between different devices, etc.

$ cat ~/.asoundrc 
pcm.!default {
    type asym
    playback.pcm {
        type plug
        slave.pcm "dmix"
    capture.pcm {
        type plug
        slave.pcm "hw:2,0"

I arrived at hw:2,0 (card 2, subdevice 0 - my USB webcam) for capture based

$ arecord -l

card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]

We're plugging away at a wiki where we folks can easily document this
