When entering a Jitsi videocall in a desktop browser, one is immediately admitted with the mic and video activated, and promptly one is battling with de-activating popup messages. For unknown design reasons, those popups tend to cover the mic/audio buttons.
While waiting for several popups to disappear one by one, the audience is inconvenienced by background noise or audio-loop (when using a second device on the call). It would certainly be user-friendly is one could actively prevent background noise disruptions by new joiners on a call.
How can a user de-activate mic/video buttons on entry by default?
How can a user avoid notifications from covering the mic/video buttons?
