Firefox blocking webc3

more options

I have been trying for hours to get Firefox to allow me to use my webcam in the browser but I have uninstalled my browser, factory reset my laptop, removed my antivirus, gone in the website to allow, tried to find a suss certificate (which I don't want to go deleting anyway because I don't want to delete the wrong thing).

If someone can help me it will be appreciated. If you are going to go into registry keys etc please be clear in your instructions how to get there and fix it because whilst I'm not novice I have autism so my understanding might not be the same as an it person. Thanks

I hope this reply should help about your Webcam problem. Please try and follow these instructions.

When you open a new FireFox tab, you should be finding the settings gear (ICON) in a corner. When you click on the settings ICON, You should be finding the "Manage more settings" option in the drop-down. Click on the same.

Then, in the settings page that opens, Go to the "Privacy & Security" tab from right side menu.

Scroll down until you find "PERMISSIONS" and find for "Camera". Click on "Settings" that is parallel to "Camera". Now, select/type all websites, that you want to give permission/access to your camera.

This should help it. Thank you!
