Steps to reproduce:

Load as an SSB with firefox --ssb Attempt to make use of microphone in voice settings.

Curious why there's been no response here for what's a pretty obvious bug. For both Google Voice and Hangouts when running in app mode, the microphone doesn't work. No way to set microphone permissions. No apparent way to troubleshoot or fix. It's very disappointing as this is the one requirement I have for my browser, to be able to run my calling apps (Hangouts/GV) in app mode. The problem seems very prevalent but very little info on the web addressing it and looking how this has sat for 2 months, seems nobody is doing anything to try and help. Thanks

Because SSB is not currently supported in any way and there are no engineers working on it.

Closing per bug 1682593.
