Hello densik,

Would you try this please :

When you're on a site where you need to use the microphone, click on the 'i' in a circle, next to the padlock at the left side of the address bar.

Then click on the little black arrow on the dropdown (next to 'Connection') and then on "More Information", which will take you to "Page Info".

Click on the 'Permissions" tab and scroll down to "Use the Microphone". Uncheck "Use Default" and check "Allow".

Then close and restart Firefox.


Go to the 3-bar menu (or Tools) => Options => Privacy & Security and scroll down to "Permissions" => Microphone

Any luck ?

This microphone in this google search engine needs to be configured in the developer’s settings (about: config) so do not enable it .. ((((((((I recorded, a site was added to the Yandex search engine and everything works !!!! And there is no google search engine ( (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3LoDzBXiFk&feature=youtu.be

In the video I see you click on that little black arrow (next to "Connection"), but then I don't see you following the rest of the instructions (like under the "Permissions" tab) ....

You seem to go straight to Options => Privacy & Security => Permissions.

Would you please read it and try again ?

I have no idea why you would try to enable a microphone using that extension .... (?)

As it works in other browsers; the only thing I can think off now is to try Safe Mode :

If Firefox is not running : Hold down the Shift key when starting Firefox.

If Firefox is running : 3-bar menu => ' ? ' (at the bottom of the dropdown) => 'Restart with Add-ons disabled'. Then OK the restart. A small dialog should appear. Click 'Start in Safe Mode' ( not 'Refresh' !)

I really have no idea what's going wrong here, but I hope that someone else will come to your rescue (fingers crossed).

Thank you very much, I will not torment you very much)))) I’m gonna have enough of it, that someone else will help!))) And how can I write to the developers themselves a link? So that they add a voice microphone to this search engine with a new update!

Or maybe you send them a video or send them so they understand what the problem is?

Let's just wait and see if someone else will come to your rescue ......

Some of my colleagues know way more than I do !

Good Dear Expert!)))) Let's wait ......... But I read, they say there is no support just in this search engine (Did you have this microphone in google search engine in your browser?)

I was just wondering :

Could it be that all you're looking for something like this :
