Have you checked the Firefox camera settings, and set it to the right camera? This could also clarify why the camera only works in another application when Firefox isn't open.

I don't have any experience with Firefox, but it was set to the wrong one in Chrome for me, I had to manually set it to the right built-in webcam.

I don't know either as I don't use Firefox, but Chrome displays a little camera icon in the URL bar when trying to video chat, and if you click on that you can choose a camera. –  WOLF LΔMBERT Jul 16 at 16:09
