Hello,

When a page inside <iframe> request permission of using microphone or camera, the firefox don't ask permission (the asking permission panel don't show up!), below is an example:

if you directly open https://meet.jit.si/test123 in firefox, the Firefox will ask microphone and camera permission from the user but if you open https://test.spacex.ml/ which put https://meet.jit.si/test123 in an iframe then FIrefox don't ask any permission and refuse user to use microphone and camera!

Please help, thanks!

This is true for cross-site iframes (i.e., not the identical origin). Several versions ago, the developers turned off the notification panel in that scenario because it was confusing regarding what site was getting permission. This is why Hangouts wouldn't work embedded in Gmail, for example.

I don't know whether there is a workaround (besides giving Firefox users a link to open the framed page in a new window or tab).

Does this solution really work? I mean, even if you do that, in the end you are embedding a "meet.jit.si" iframe that has another domain, and it's precisely that iframe that needs the camera and microphone permissions.

How did you make it work? Can you explain your solution in more detail? Thanksss
