The "permissions" area of the settings doesn't let users input a site and manage it as it describes in the documentation.

I'm having an issue with google, I use google voice for making calls with my Mac using firefox version 69 (and 69.0.1) and until recently I was able to have firefox remember that I granted google permission to access my microphone. Now it asks every time I make a call and the microphone is accessed. The documentation says there should be a "remember this decision" box, but none exists. It also says I would be able to go into the permission settings and mark it as always allow, but that isn't an option either, just allow or block. The absence of the more permanent permissions is similar to other permission windows like for notifications and location sharing. There is a box to block future requests in the settings but that applies to all sites and it blocks instead of allows. What am I missing? I haven't made any recent changes to settings or extensions. Any information you can provide would be much appreciated. Thank you very much.

Make sure you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
  • remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.

  • do not clear the Site Preferences
  • clearing "Site Preferences" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exception for password and other website specific data

OK, I thought it was fixed but I was mistaken. I've used the "Tools -> Page Info -> Permissions" pages for google.com and all the related subdomains; they all show that the microphone is "allow" but I'm still asked each time. I've also made sure my settings comply to your suggestions.
