The mic and webcam popup doesn't go away even after the tab is closed. How to solve it? A bug?
When I go to a website that requests access to my webcam and/or my microphone (and I grant it), a tiny popup comes up over the tab bar. That's fine. But when I close the tab using either or both, the popup doesn't go away. It doesn't contain the mic and/or cam icon(s) anymore, just the Firefox logo, but it doesn't go away and, oh my, it is so annoying.
The attached images are (1) the popup when I am using my mic in a tab, and (2) the popup when I am no longer using neither mic nor cam anywhere but the popup is still visible.
I can only remove the Firefox-icon-only popup by restarting Firefox!
How do I solve this? Is this a bug?
Apparently the last update solved it. I just closed a tab that was using mic and cam, and the annoying icon went away.Funda le mpendulo ngokuhambisana nalesi sihloko 👍 0

Yes, that bug is fixed in Firefox 79.

The solution might not be consistent though. The issue just happened again. I am seeing right now a popup with the Firefox icon alone, after quitting a conference call and even closing the related tab. Should I report it in the bug tracking page?
EDIT: a few minutes later it went away. Unusual that it didn't vanish right away. But it did go away, so I'll just take note if it happens again.
