Is there a way to hide the address bar in the Android version while playing videos in full screen mode?

Hi, I tried watch a vid in full screen mode on my Nexus 7 running android os 6.0.1 and it automatically hid the address bar. What device and OS are you using?
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with android 5.1.1
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Android 5.1.1
Have you checked to see if you have an update for the OS?
Also do you know if your RAM or memory isnt being hogged and not allowing the videos to run. Could you let us know?
There are no updates available. Videos play but the address bar is on while the videos play
There is a setting, not quite for this exact problem, but I think it will work for you in full screen mode, and you need to make sur you are in proper full screen mode, but in Settings, General, then make sure the option Full Screen Browsing is ticked, and I am pretty certain that will get rid of your problem. Let know if that works. :)
If this was helpful, can you click on the 'Was This Helpful to you' Yes or No as it shows to thers that a solution has been found. Thank you. :)
That box is checked. It only hides the address bar while scrolling UP on a page NOT during video playback
fI am really sorry then, but I cant think of anything else. I will keep looking for you. Are you sure you are in full screen mode? Sorry to have to ask. Can you check on that.
Can you tell me, I dont watch vids in FF on my phone, so not sure how to get into full screen mode. Is there a way of doing it through FF before watching the film. I have tried to look, but cant seemed to find it.
ok,something I just found for those wanting to go full screen mode using Androids version of FF, but it entails changing System settings, where youn eed to be really sure about what you are doing when you change them. I found this, not sure if itss what you need, and if it isnt that is about it really as far as my knowledge is concerned, really sorry about that.
