firefox accessed my camera in background
Hello thanks for your time my question is i had received time stamped notification on my android device that said firefox had accessed my camera in background i don't think this is a webrtc query since there wasnt a point it actually asked. It just automatically did it. My question is why did this happen did it take meta data or did it actually take a picture?or a screen shot? when it happened i just opened my gallery up i had not any unusual sites open on my tabs. Jusy the usual ones and this hasnt happened before. Just hoping for some clarity thanks for your time.

This message is being caused by the website that you are viewing requesting access to your camera or microphone. We could keep this request hidden, but we think it would be better for you to make an informed choice. No picture should have been taken, it is just an advisory message.
We are working on ways to reduce the frequency of these messages and this will hopefully be in a future update. In the meantime, you can adjust this in the Android application settings.
I hope this helps.
