Hi there,

I have a laptop running Windows 10, plus the latest version of Firefox. The laptop has a built-in webcam. I have also connected an external webcam via USB. This second camera is better quality and preferred, I visit a web site. When I first activate the camera, I am presented with a dropdown of available cameras. The USB camera appears in the list. All is fine. I instruct Firefox to "allow" this camera to be used. (first image) However, after a short time, less than a second, the same dialog is shown again, this time without the USB camera. (second image) There have been no actual hardware changes. I can then click "allow" again and the *integrated* camera works, i.e. not the desired camera. So, two questions, really. First, what just happened? Did Firefox try to control the USB camera, find that it couldn't, and redisplay the dialog showing only the "controllable" option? Second, my desired endpoint here is for the web site to use the USB camera. How do I achieve this? I can easily do this with Chrome but I like Firefox. TIA.

I change the default action for e.g. mime type PDF to a bash script. - works I get the filename of the downloaded pdf file in my bash script - works I can do things with this downloaded file - works

But can I get the download URL of this file in my script? It's not a dedicated URL in a tab - so I can not read the URL of the active tab.

It's a direct download link from, let' say, google search.

What do I have to do to get the URL of the downloaded file in a bash script?

Thank you in advanced!
