Hello, I have a problem with the screen share pop up that appears when a website tries to access the screen. When I try to share the entire screen on Google Meet, as soon as I click Share screen > Full screen, the button grays out and nothing is shared. The pop up that allows you to select the screen to share never opens.

The only way to reset Meet's "Share screen" button is by exiting and joining the Google Meet room again. I've checked that meet.google.com's screen permission is set to "Always ask" and not "Blocked". How can I fix this problem?

For the last couple of weeks, I have not been able to share my external monitor. Firefox recognizes that I have two screens, but no matter which screen I choose from the share screen dropdown, it always shares my laptop monitor.

Just to be clear on my problem

1. Choose the option to share my screen (in Google Meet). 2. The native Firefox dialog for choosing which screen to share pops up. 3. In the dialog, Screen 1 will be selected by default. That shows a preview of my laptop screen. 4. In the dialog, switch to Screen 2.

EXPECTED The preview should show my external monitor.

GOT The preview for screen 2 shows the same thing as screen 1 - my laptop monitor.

Below are screenshots showing the same same screen in the preview. (It goes without saying, that when I actually share, it always shares my laptop monitor.)

I'm using Firefox 62.0 (64-bit), on a Mac running High Sierra (10.13.6 (17G65)).
