I think it's time to add Screen Control permission as many use Twitch, Discord or any screen sharing website/service to make video calls or streaming and Firefox is unable to allow permanent access to the screen., this is what it says when I want to grant automatically further control to Discord screen sharing requests.

Discord support team told me they encountered some problems on running Discord on Firefox (compatibility-related), but they didn't tell which exactly for privacy and company rules.

The specification is clear that persistent sharing of screen resources is not allowed. This is designed to protect users from inadvertently giving web properties access to their screens. I'm not sure there's much we can do here. 

Familiar face

Yes, it's understandable, but when sharing the screen it usually appears a very visible rectangle on top screen so it's quite impossible to not notice of being sharing the screen.
