This feature will be available to all Firefox for Android users soon. In the meantime, try it on Firefox Beta.

Firefox for Android's built-in controls let you expand embedded videos so that they take up your whole screen. This article shows you how to turn "full screen mode" on and off at the touch of a button.

Here's how to do it:

  1. When you tap on a supported video, the full screen icon will show up on the video controls. Tap on it to expand the video:
    android expand video
  2. To shrink the video back to its original size, tap the full screen icon again:
    android original size
Tip: Once you're in full screen mode, you can rotate your device to change the video's display orientation.
