Google Meet on Firefox: Sharing screen is not sharing mouse cursor pointer

I use Firefox 82.0.3 and I don't want to use Chrome. This problem only occurs on Firefox. This problem doesn't occur on Chrome at all.

The problem is that when sharing the screen in a Google Meeting, Firefox only shares the mouse cursor if I share my monitor screen that I have to the left of my head.

Sharing the mouse cursor in meetings is quite fundamental to have the audience focus on the specific part of the screen the presenter is talking about, much like a laser pointer.

I know that Google slides have a laser pointer, but I'm not talking about sharing presentations, but contents of the screens.

My screen setup is: Laptop's screen External monitor 1 plugged into laptop's HDMI cable (it's a DVI to HDMI cable) External monitor 2 plugged into DVI port on port replicator which is plugged to my laptop's USB port.

The physical set up is: [2][3]

   [1]

This is also how it's shown on my Windows' Display Settings.

Where: [1] laptop screen [3] monitor connected to port replicator as main monitor [2] monitor to my left, I have to look left to see it.

[1] and [2] are aligned with my head. Monitor screen [2] extends to the right into monitor screen [3] which extends downwards into laptop screen [1].

I entered a Google hangout meeting from my laptop and from my phone. I then shared the screens from my laptop so that I could see the laptop shared screen on my phone.

I shared each of the 3 screens on by 1, and only the monitor to my left shares the mouse pointer.

I then shared a window and if I move the window to the screen to the left, it'll share the mouse. But if I move it to the screen in front of my head, the mouse isn't shared, unless I move the cursor all the way to the right until it disappears on from the screen, and that's when it appears on my phone, but on the extreme left side, not right side.

Sort of similar behaviour happens when I share a non-maximised window from my left monitor. Over the shared window on my left monitor, if I place the mouse on the last 30% right part of the window, on my phone the mouse appears displaced further to the left, like on the first 20% of the shared window.

It's like the mouse pointer were in a displaced layer that when shared, gets moved to the left on the receiver of the shared screen.

If I maximise the shared window, this problem goes away.

I swapped the 2 external monitor cables and the problem persisted, somehow with only the monitor to the left [in spite of the cable swapping] sharing the mouse cursor.

On Windows' Display Settings, I then stopped the screen extension and just used the laptop one. In this scenario, the mouse pointer over the laptop screen was shared.

On Windows' Display Settings, I made each of the 3 monitors "Make this my main display" and this still didn't make a difference. Only the monitor to the left continued to share the mouse pointer.

I then disconnected both external monitors and shared my laptop's screen, then the mouse cursor was being shared to my phone.

So going by trial and error, for me it seems like it's a bug in the way Firefox inherits display settings from Windows 10.

None of these problems happen on Chrome but I just don't want to use Chrome.

I also just tried Zoom and I shared my main monitor via a Zoom meeting where I also joined from my phone, and the mouse cursor was shared.

So it's really a problem between Firefox and Google Meet. Makes me wonder if Google does this intentionally to make Chrome more attractive, as the new blur background feature and background replacement by a photo are also unavailable on Firefox, which seems intentional to me.

I followed a web link to a Reddit page - looking for answers to a code question.

The screenshot - redacted - shows Google sticking a request up to see if I want to sign into reddit as a google account user. It shows my name, email address and alternative email address from other google account.

This means either Google have been fed info to allow them to know when I can be annoyed with them butting into my private browsing. or Reddit have connected me to my google account. Either way this is a breach of privacy - enacted while using Firefox.

It seems to be a new behavior but is one that is really annoying. I am not a reddit memeber nad have been there maybe twice before in the last 6 months.

When trying to get to the help forum (which was 8 pages of clicking through the same links answering FF questions) I was presented with a form allowing me to update info and add more info to my FF account.

The possible button responses were :

   Do it now
   Do it later - and we will nag eeerrr   remind you to do this. 

What happened to the NO Don't bug me any more button? Mozilla have removed my ability to CHOOSE to NOT ADD INFORMATION I dont want to add.

Its a nasty web trend that Mozilla seem to have picked up on: Do now, or Do later ! No is not an option.

And if someone tells me that adding MORE information is for my own good - I'll probably point out I am old enough and savvy enough to know what is good for me - not FF, not an AI and not other people who don't know me.

Hello,

I am managing Firefox for a large organization. We are installing Firefox on 3 environments and never had any issues until version 78. I made a deployment package for version 78.0.2 ESR and pushed it to around 100 test machines. Everything works fine on VDI and desktop, but on the Surface which is the main device used by around 15000 users the browser doesn't do anything. Sometimes even the menu seems to be frozen. We use GPO to customize the browser, so no Firefox accounts, no Sync, no Pocket and other functions are disabled. Even so, as i mentioned, VDI and Desktop work normally. (also tested with 78.4.1 today, same behaviour) Another point is, version 68.6.1 ESR works fine on the same Surface device.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I have a laptop with two cameras and 3 sound inputs. On websites that use webrtc (eg. meet.google.com), a permission dialog pops up to allow or deny access to a microphone and camera.

Those permission dialogs have a drop-down, but the drop-down has only one choice. Rebooting re-organizes which camera or microphone is in the drop-down list. Probably because of USB wakeup.

So to choose which camera to use I have to reboot and hope the right one is in the drop-down.

Starting recently (maybe a few weeks ago) none of my add-ons work reliably. They all break in their own special way but considering they all broke at the same time and are all fixable in the same way I assume that the issue is with Firefox rather than the add-ons themselves.

Bitwarden doesn't work in private windows normally. A screenshot of what this looks like is attached. Currently this message is sometimes displayed when I am using a normal (not private) browsing window. This can be fixed by disabling and reenabling the add-on.

uBlock Origin sometimes stops blocking ads. This can be fixed by disabling and reenabling the add-on.

Facebook containers no longer automatically detects Facebook owned domains such as facebook.com and messenger.com so when I visit one of these sites I am not in the Facebook container and so I am not logged in. I am able to manually enter the Facebook container by right clicking on the new tab button and selecting Facebook. Then the container works and I am logged in. This can be fixed by disabling and reenabling the add-on but this deletes any custom containers that I have created so isn't even a great workaround.

As well as being able to fix these issues by disabling and reenabling the add-ons individually, I can fix the issue by restarting Firefox.

The issue always seems to occur if Firefox is open long enough but I'm not sure what triggers it.

I have other add-ons, such as Tridactyl, that don't seem to be affected. Perhaps because they don't rely on what ever it is that is causing this issue.

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

As the title says, a couple of days ago I noticed that all progress bars in YouTube thumbnails have disappeared. The "Watched" text is also gone. I tried clean reinstall, removing all add-ons, but it did not help. Just to check, I installed Chrome - everything visible (see image - FF left, Chrome right), which would suggest that something is up with Firefox. I also check the history settings on YouTube, everything is turned on, and I see viewing progress in thumbnails when I'm on the history settings page, but not on "normal" YouTube.

I would appreciate any sort of help or advice. My life doe snot depend on this feature, but I really like it and it helps navigate YouTube more efficiently.

I managed to compile firefox on linux ubuntu but did not generate the executables for windows.

Then I started configuring on windows, but I believe the problem is with the Visual Studio version, I installed the latest version of VS 2019, then I found that it doesn't work, because VS 2019 now requires the "C" compiler version 10, and mozbuild uses version 9.

I ended up discovering in other documentation that I have to use visual studio 2017, but I installed VS 2017 version 15.9.29, however it gives error in the compilation.

I found in other documentation that I must use VS 2017 version 15.8, but this version is not available for download.

Can anyone help me what I have to do to be able to compile it?

While testing a softphone widget from Zulu, I called my own cell phone. When I answered the call from the cell phone and said hello, a feedback loop was created that started an ever increasing series of "hello"s being played by the computer sound and the cell phone's speaker. When I hung up the call subsequent calls to any phone number reveals that the microphone appears to be dead. However, the microphone continues to work fine for ms-teams and zoom but not via firefox and the zulu softphone widget. Rebooting, clearing cache, uninstalling the widget and reinstalling does not fix the problem. Where is firefox "remembering" that this event happened and refusing to use the microphone?
