On Facebook.com I cannot send voice note style messages and get this error message

"You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone To make calls or send voice clips, go to your browser settings and allow Facebook access to your microphone."

On another website, when I try to record live video using my built in camera, the camera itself does not activate and only shows a black screen. The microphone DOES work on this site however.

Here is what I have done so far: I've reset the pram and smc on my macbook Granted permissions to these websites in firefox Granted permissions to my mic and camera to firefox in mac security settings Restarted firefox in safe mode, without add ons Cleared the cache, cookies, etc in firefox Reinstalled firefox and tried it all again

Nothing has worked so far and this is beyond frustrating. This problem cropped up at some point after updating from firefix 89 I believe. All help would be super appreciated, I rely on voice/video because typing is very difficult for me. thanks!

I'm not necessarily looking for a solution, but curious if others are seeing similar issues!

A couple years ago I switched from Google Chrome to Firefox because Chrome was a notorious memory hog and kept making my Macbook freak out (i.e., hang, crash, fan acceleration). But after I upgraded to Big Sur 11.5 a few weeks ago, my Macbook started freaking out again, even with Firefox. Here are some things I suspect are causes:

  • AdBlocker Ultimate add-on. Every now and then my fan would go nuts, the add-on extensions in the upper right of my browser would glitch, and Firefox would hang (tabs refuse to load, etc) for about 30 seconds. Once I turned it off my computer has been just fine.
  • Dark Reader add-on. Same phenotype as AdBlocker.
  • My caps lock key?? This one is super weird. I noticed that when I had the above two add-ons enabled, hitting my caps lock key would commence computer freak-outs.

Anyone else seeing this? If so, what are add-ons you'd recommend that function similarly to AdBlocker and Dark Reader?

firefox doesn't work right on facebook and yahoo mail, while other browsers have no problem. It either operates extremely slowly or just doesn't function and freezes. On facebook many times areas show up blank and therefore non functional. Functions on yahoomail also at times just don't work. When I go to chrome or safari there is normal functioning. I did a refresh of firefox and it generally worked a bit faster but didn't improve the problems I just described. Also for your info I've spent a very very long time trying to find how to contact you. You really don't make it easy. I have been using firefox mainly for many years and prefer it to other browsers, but if it doesn't work properly are needed websites, then of course I will have to discontinue. I hope you can fix the problem. I have a macbook air, don't know how you can fix it if it's not a general problem. Hope you all do. Thanks. Samana Fisher
