There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.

When the browser is being controlled from out-of-process, e.g. when Marionette or the remote debugging protocol is used, we add a visual hint to the browser UI to indicate to the user that the browser session is under remote control.
