At https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/users/edit or https://accounts.firefox.com/settings I see no way to change my email address. It appears that the only choice is to add a new account, and optionally delete the old one. No. I want to change the email address, and still see my old posts after logging in with the new one. Is that not permitted? The only setting I see is Secondary email address. I want to change the primary.

Microphone asking permission on every page on same site

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.

... nor does middle clicking on a tab cause it to close. i had this problem a few years ago and cannot remember how I fixed it ( unless it was to toggle about.config

browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true to false and back to true again) That did not work this time around.

Problem arose on my Win10 machine when left on overnight for Win upgrade, though the mouse driver seems to be a generic MS one from 2006. Have tried loading Logitech Options and selecting the required radio button for middle click/new tab but no luck.

When did this go away? I *LOVED* that ability.

Update: Firefox randomly glitched and wouldn't allow any kind of click-and-drag behavior anywhere on URL or bookmark bar. Required clearing cache to fix, process restart didn't fix it.
