I can not disable the fullscreen warning in Firefox 42, it was possible to disable it in previous versions by disabling "full-screen-api.approval-required" in about:config.

At the very least allow us to add exceptions for websites, I don't need to be bloody told that I've entered Fullscreen Mode on Youtube when explicitly telling it I want to watch a fucking video in full screen! It's a redundant warning in that situation!

There wasn't a way to add site specific exceptions before, which is likely why you saw a lot of people disabling this safety measure completely, and there still is no way to have site specific disabling of the warning.

Note comment 26 in that bug report, it reflects my feelings on the change. Please add site-specific exceptions that prevent the fullscreen warning from ever appearing when something on a specified website tries to enter a fullscreen mode.
