Video Features Not Working (Fullscreen, picture in picture, notification panel control)
I have the latest version of Android 13 and Firefox up to date on my phone, but there's been some weird behavior when playing videos as of late. Videos refuse to properly go fullscreen now. When I tap the fullscreen button, the video moves to the center of the screen but stays in portrait orientation, which is obviously not what I want. In addition, picture-in-picture is not working at all, and the notification control panel (that lets you pause and play minimized videos from the notification) is not appearing even though notifications are not disabled for Firefox. Videos still play, but almost none of the features for them are working. What is going on? Can anyone help?

What level of enhanced tracking protection do you have set?
Do you have any add-ons installed in Firefox for Android?
I have advanced tracking protection set to standard, and I have uBlock Origin and Video Background Play Fix installed.
Unfortunately, I have the same problem. Removing the add-ons or changing the tracking protection did not solve the problem for me. However I realized that the media control notification works as expected when I use a private tab ! Maybe this can help a bit for a fix. This is my favorite feature so I really miss it.
Thanks in advance
