i own a macbook and have recently switched from chrome to firefox- in my mac settings, it hasnt given firefox the permissions to use my microphone or camera. it doesnt show up the usual list to be able to allow the permissions. i've enabled microphone and camera permissions for the websites i want through firefox, but i cant even unmute myself. i think i need firefox to give me a popup and ask for microphone permissions, but it hasnt done that- and even if it did, i think it would show up in the list for allowing permissions through my mac settings (it shows applications that have requested for microphone access).

Chosen solution

here's a photo of my mac settings for microphone (it's the same for camera as well). i can't scroll down because these are the only four applications that show up.

edit: somehow i managed to fix it by turning on both camera and mic permissions again, and then a mac pop up appeared asking me to let firefox use the microphone. problem solved by accident.
