Canvas prompt is not properly shown on https://www.google.com/streetview/. But we don't know why yet.
This is a severe breakage issue. We need to investigate it soon.

According to comment 1, I think it happens because of canvas auto-blocking. So after Bug 1446472, there will show a canvas icon alongside the url bar, an identity block icon, if the canvas auto-blocking happens.

So people can grant the canvas permission through clicking the icon and make the website works again after refreshing the page.
