Well first of all thanks for your daily work on firefox, or better said the mozilla community! I've updated this week to FF 42 which re-enables the pre-disabled (by myself) message on fullscreen videos.
So I've started to search about it, why I can no longer disable this message. After a short research I found the nearest reason: pishing, or better said website rendering (so entering passwords or credit card details into a fake shown homepage). So all clear, but I've started to think a bit about that. I'll be glad if you/someone could answer my questions about that:
- Why do you take this decision away from me? Why can't I decide by myself, that I want to browse in a unsafe or possible unsafe way with the firefox?
- When I change settings in the about:config section I get prompted with a message like "Attention, changes made here could possible generating security Issues / be aware from the great wolf in the forest / boo boo.. (you get it)" and then I confirm that. Isn't that already a confess, that I must be alerted by myself when browsing with my own settings?
- I get it, that a notification for fullscreen is needed, but why can't I change this notification at all? Size, Showtime, Position, Color - are those no options that users can make?
- Are there any thoughts about that in the next version of Firefox?
So these were my questions (I know, they're a bit silly, caused by a rectangular box who disappears...), I'll be very happy to get those answered.
