Currently on full-screen, in Android 4.0 the status-bar will be shown and in Android 4.4+ a grey status bar will appear.

This is very similar to bug 1074924. Perhaps for a period of time it was fixed but it has regressed.

I can reproduce this on all channels. 

Currently with this alongside bug 1098390 makes our full-screen experience poor.

Steps to reproduce
  Enter full-screen

I don't see .setStatusBarTintEnabled(!fullscreen) calls in code. Why/Where was this removed?

Looks like it got refactored.

Is this called still?
Is this similar to Bug 1032179?
Sounds similar to me. NI to Aaron

Let's try to address this sooner than later

Video from my Nexus 6 (5.0.1):
I can repro on my N9, with Lollipop.

I can't repro on my N4/7 with 4.4.

Aaron, can you repro on any pre-Lollipop devices?
Flags: needinfo?(aaron.train)
I can reproduce it on a Sony Xperia Sola (Android 4.0.4) and on a Samsung
Galaxy Tab 3 (Android 4.4.2), both updated to the latest firmware.

This bug didn't exist in Firefox 34. I also downgraded to Firefox 34 to
confirm it after experiencing it in Firefox 35. I tried Firefox Nightly too
and the regression is still there.

In case it matters both devices have hardware buttons (back, home, menu).

I am attaching screenshots.
I'm going to blame bug 1056002, which landed in 35.

The backout of bug 1056002 fixed this for me on my N9, the only device I can repro on (granted, it's Lollipop).

Nikos, this change should be in tomorrow's Nightly. Can you reproduce?
Flags: needinfo?(nmzbza2014)
I just installed the latest nightly (39.0a1) and the bug is fixed in both devices. Fullscreen is working correctly again. Thank you!

When will the fix reach the stable release? Firefox 39 or earlier?

WORKSFORME by the backout of bug 1056002.

We intend to fix this in Firefox 37+ (Beta).
