another thing, the shine on the back face on the dome should be set to zero, by default, any transparent object will have the shine set to emulate glass, so the inside of the dome is reflecting light and objects, since the front is transparent.

New firelight render with your help. No hint of sphere light "shadows". I used to use flat invisible lights in the fireplace cavity, but they left a dividing line shadow on the side walls, which is why I switched to a dome light and now something in the shape of a flattened sphere.

The scene is left quite dark just to emphasize the firelight.

That's great and it looks so good it's an amazing effect. The flat light leaving a line is because you used beam=soft, if you use "none", it will go away.

Okay - I will experiment with beam none.

It will be much faster too as it has only 2 faces, front and back.
