Hi

This is being caused by the website that you are viewing requesting access to your camera or microphone. We could keep this request hidden, but we think it would be better for you to make an informed choice.

We are working on ways to reduce the frequency of these messages and this will hopefully be in a future update. In the meantime, you can adjust this in the Android application settings.

No, the website does not requested access at that time and I tottally sure that I did not allow that request at any site I visited using Firefox.

Look at my screenshot. The system notifies me that the browser has already used the camera covertly. It's a very strange

Yes, it is Firefox notifying you, but it will have been triggered by an advert on that page. It may not be obvious and it is very sneaky, which is why Firefox alerts you, instead of just letting it go through.

It's not Firefox notification. It's system (samsung) alert. Are you feel the difference?

Hi

I am sorry, but I do not know cyrillic to be able to read that screenshot.

Are you able to provide an English version of that text?

Thank you, that is really useful.

Yes, it does look like Firefox is flagging up a usage request from content on a page that you have visited.
