Postáilte

im was trying to use my webcam on omegle, and it kept telling me i had denied access, which i had not. i tried SEVERAL other sites, all of which seem to act like i never even clicked allow access to my webcam!! i deleted cookies and cache, i uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and rebooted my laptop many times. NOTHING WORKS!

Hi cicero, In the Firefox 68.0 update, camera and microphone require an https connection to work. See this article for an explanation: Camera & microphone require https in Firefox 68.

I also have this issue, even on https, and it also won't allow my microphone to be used, seemingly on any site, even when I explicitly give the site permission. I've triple-checked, and the sites I'm using are over https and all have permission to use both my webcam and microphone. It's very frustrating.

I can't speak for cicero, but I have the same issue and the webcam and mic work everywhere else on my system. Only Firefox has any issues.

I've checked that the permissions are enabled in every way possible in that article, nothing works.

Yeah, the changes are definitely saved, every time I go to the site and check the settings it says that permission is granted. Still doesn't work though. I've tried everything, including uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

For future reference, instead of uninstalling/reinstalling try a Clean Install: Firefox keeps crashing at startup Scroll down to Try a clean install.

The only thing left is anti-virus. Close Firefox first. Disable your anti-virus and try it again.

My only antivirus is Windows Defender. I've toggled every possible setting and retried everything and it still doesn't work.

Go to the site where you want to use your cam/mic. Right-click on any blank area and select View Page Info... A window will open similar to the screenshot. Click on the Permissions tab. Check through all of those settings for anything that might be blocking use.

After you delete the program files, run a registry cleaner and restart your computer. Then install Firefox.
