Every time I want to enable my webcam or microphone in my browser, the regular flash screen pops up and I need click allow or deny.

However I can not click allow or deny, it is not responding to my clicks.

Does anyone know a fix ?

This has no effect. –  Tom Brossman Dec 4 '11 at 9:30

The above worked for me. You can also run flash-player-properties on Dash by typing in "Adobe". Then go to the website you want to allow Cam/Mic access. Set it to Allow. Make sure you click on the Camera & Mic Access column of the site, and not the name of the website so the drop-down options will show because the layout looks just like a text list that's unclickable. –  Marky Feb 20 '12 at 15:48

Clicking never ask again sets the available storage to 0. I don't know why it's called never ask again it's more like disable storage. –  tutuca Apr 14 '12 at 2:40

Those who's having trouble. There's 7 tabs that you can choose under the settings. So: choose "Website Privacy Settings" which is the third from the right (picture of an eye on a monitor). Choose which web that you want to allow in the list and select "Always Allow". It works when i'm trying to let tunerr.com to access my microphone. –  AFwcxx Jul 5 '13 at 9:17

+1 for a helpful workaround, but it would be nice to have a way to actually click the box when it comes up. –  Goos Apr 1 at 16:34

When you surf to Settings Manager - Website Privacy Settings, which will bring you to the tab with the monitor with the eye on, you need to do the following:

  1. Find the site in the list and click on it..

  2. Click on Always allow.

  3. Go back to the site and refresh the page, the dialog will pop up again but this time you are able to click on the Allow button.

Tried and got it to work this way.

I have the same problem as the OP, this doesn't help b/c it doesn't allow me to click on allow in the given link –  tofu_bacon Jan 31 at 17:25

I think this is related to a problem others are having about not being able to interact with the flash player settings window, sometimes not at all and sometimes only in fullscreen.

For me, the culprit was Adblock Plus in both Chromium and Firefox. When wanting to work with a YouTube video, I disabled Adblock Plus on youtube.com, and so forth.

it's the flashblock addon. if you add both the domain where the embed tag is in (the one in your address bar while viewing the flash) and the domain that the option screen is asking access for, it will work. but you still have the bug where you can't interact with the settings screen, but now the camera access will be allowed always. not exactly a fix... –  gcb Feb 16 '13 at 19:12

Hey guys I was having the exact same problem until I wrote on the adress bar chrome://plugins and then I clicked in more details located at the top right and I disabled the adobe flash player plugin and enabled the PepperFlash one but I'm using google chrome so this will only work for google chrome users but still if you are using firefox I'm pretty sure there's also a way to go to the plugins and disable adobe flash player and enable pepperflash :)
