I need to use Google Meet for a professional purpose. When I use is from the Chrome browser, I can present a specific tab on my desktop; however, I prefer to use Firefox as my default Browser. The problem is, when I use Meet on Firefox, the presentation options don't include sharing a tab. Is there a way to fix this, or do I just need to use Chrome when meeting?

Thank you.

There is no browser issue, which is I provided screenshot to show that Google Meet does not have all the functions available in Firefox by design.

The picture you posted is for a university bookstore, and part of it is blocked. Did you do the blocking?

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Apparently, I attached the wrong screenshot. If you could return to the initial question and pretend like I didn't send a screenshot, the problem is the following:

Use Chrome, not a browser issue.

Perfunctory reply. I have all my bookmarks on Firefox. I guess maybe I should just start using Chrome for everything if the issues can't be resolved on Firefox.
