Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to
2. Click on "Cam Data" button

Actual results:

Permission notification says "Unknown origin" is requesting permission.

Expected results:

Bug 1366357 fix made "Unknown protocol" to "Unknown origin", which I don't think solved the issue of confusing permission request.

Tested in Latest Nightly.

Johann, can you take a look? Off-hand, I would imagine we should prompt for the origin that created the blob?

This will be fixed by bug 1371741 by disallowing null-principals from accessing data:, which is why I ignored the issue in bug 1366357. I'm not sure what the status of bug 1371741 is. I have a patch waiting for jib to review there so I'll defer to him to sort out this bug :)

I meant from accessing getUserMedia :)
Okay, seems like CSP sandbox is not considered in WebRTC permission.


It shows origin based on URL and does not check whether Document is sandbox. Should I file this as a separate bug?

Hm, that's the same thing, it's a null principal so it should just get disallowed in bug 1371741. I'll try to get a hold of jib for answering this...
Flags: needinfo?(jhofmann)
Oh, yeah it's clearly mentioned there :D Sorry :P
No worries, thanks for looking into this!

Now that bug 1371741 got fixed I think we can close this as done as well, Jun, can you confirm that you can no longer request permissions for "Unknown Origin" in the latest Nightly?

Jun, does this issue still need verification?
If yes, can you explain exactly what should be verified?
I could confirm the fix in all the main OSes.

Thank you for your contribution!

Sorry just noticed this. I can confirm that this is fixed in Nightly :)

Flags: needinfo?(s.h.h.n.j.k)

Thanks Jun, I think that's enough to verify :)


Alright. Thank you!
