$video.controls = "[true|false]"; not working on Firefox

I'm building a custom html5-mediaplayer. I use custom controls, so when I create a media element (with JS) I first set it to controls = false; When going fullscreen with a video, I want to change the value of controls to true, so that they appear in fullscreen mode only. However, the object stays on false. It seems one cannot change the controls, once they are set.

Am I missing something? How can I change that value? All other browsers I've tried do that nicely (Chromium, Opera, Safari - Linux and MacOS).

Thanks for any hints!
