After updating from 70 to 71 videos can't go fullscreen anymore (navigation bars on top still there)
Hello, There used to be a difference between watching a video in fullscreen mode via firefox or having the browser itself in fullscreen mode. After updating from 70 to 71 I can only get the latter to work.
- Tried different video hosting sites it doesn't make a difference
- they are not flash videos (that plugin is permanently disabled in my browser)
When clicking e.g. on the little sign on the bottom right of a youtube video that used to put that video in fullscreen showing ONLY the video on my entire screen now I get the video with firefox tabbar and adressbar visible. Super annoying!
On another note I just got that "picture in picture" feature which isn't working at all, when i click on it a little window opens for a second only to be immediately closed again and clicking on the "pip-button" visible on the video has no function or effect anymore. Don't know if that's related at all. Really should know better than to update firefox I can't remember the last time I did without breaking something and spending hours or days trying to find a solution I'm just tired of it...
Greetings and thanks for any tips Edit: starting in safe-mode doesn't change any of it

plugins are all disabled (but I do have a lot of extensions)

You can right-click in free area on a toolbar and set the checkmark on "Hide Toolbars" to make the toolbars auto-hide.

that is for the fullscreenmode of the browserwindow it doesn't work when clicking the fullscreen button of a video
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

Thanks for trying to help (both of you and sorry for not saying that earlier) I already tried safe-mode that doesn't change anything. Just tried hardware acceleration on/off both doesn't change anything either. Does really noone else have this problem? It seems to me it's more a thing of how firefox handles the "fullscreen command" from the video button than the video itself causing a problem. I can still watch videos they are not slow or anything I just can't get them to go over the fullscreen like I used to (or like vlc player would do). I'm guessing if a webpage would have a fullscreen button for anything else that it wouldn't work either. It's like the browsers fullscreen option and the videos fullscreen option are conflicting. Sorry english is not my native language :(
Getting the same problem... I can't go in fullscreen but ONLY if I hit F on youtube to go fullscreen, but the fullscreen icon on the video player works... weird
Note that you can disable PiP via "Options/Preferences -> General -> Browsing".
