When I go to one site, Firefox is now asking me microphone permission on every page on that site during the same session.

This did not happen until two days ago. It used to be when I granted permission for my microphone to be used on that site, it applied to every page on it throughout the session, as long as I did not close out, sign out or close the window. Now, every time I go to speak, when on a new page, it asks for permission. Since this is a language learning site, this has become a real pain.

There is no "remember this setting" dialog either when I first give permission to use the microphone. It is asking for permission for the general site, so it's not asking for each page. When I check the permissions box after moving to the next page, no permissions are granted.

Nothing that I can tell has changed. It's not doing this with other browsers, which is concerning.

I checked my settings site and nothing has changed. I also did Firefox refresh and that did not help. Signed off and signed in again, on both the laptop and website -- all did not change this.

Microphone unavailable with Microsoft 365 online despite having permission

Using Windows 10 laptop, Firefox 82.0.3 64-bit. When I sign in to Onedrive at onedrive.live.com using my personal account (not work or school), I open Word document in Firefox browser with "Open in Word Online". When I click on Dictate button to use the microphone I get error message saying "Problem with Dictation. We don't have access to your microphone. Please check to make sure your browser has permission to use your microphone." HOWEVER, in the address bar, next to the shield and lock icons, there is another icon that looks like 2 keys in opposite orientation, that when clicked shows the site does seem to have permission for the microphone.

If I then sign out of Onedrive, and then sign into it using MS Edge and open same document, the microphone DOES work.

The microphone also works on other websites accessed with Firefox

Seems like Firefox is blocking the microphone on this one site.
