How do I change the default permissions for all sites?

I would like to change the default permissions to block location, deny use of camera, deny share screen, etc. across ALL sites.

To clarify, I do not want to use Page Info on every single site. I want to use default, with default being blocked.

I can't find an answer on how to do so. How do I change these settings?

Current Firefox releases have a Permissions section on the "Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security" page. Each of the available items have a Settings button and in this Settings window there is a "don't ask me" checkbox at the bottom top block future prompts. I don't know if the Firefox 56 version you use already has this feature and if not then update unless you have a very serious reason to stick with 56. Keep in mind that it isn't safe to use an unsupported browser with known security vulnerabilities.

Most permissions are there in 56, but Ask Your Location, Load Images, Share the Screen, Use the Camera, and Use the Microphone are not available to edit.

By default these go to Always Ask, but I wish to make them default to Block.

HI, not happening until you update as per cor-el.
