Hello,
I have a user in our national support forum asking how they can grant/remove permission to websites to use microphone and webcam. There's an option in Firefox in the Security pane, but he cannot find something similar for Seamonkey. I've never used these features in general, so I have no idea. Does anyone know?

Sort of...


Bring up the webpage, right click on it and select Page Info. Page Info> Permissions > Camera/mike > Allow.

There might be settings as well in Edit>Preferences but I can't find them. Like you, I don't use this stuff.

... and Ctrl+i or Menu -> Tools -> Data Manager -> (search website/domain name)

@iacchi
BTW Permission is per domain. If particular website loads frame from 3-rd party domain (one witch uses/requires mic-cam) then it must be set for that domain ("too" or "only").
