Firefox Tracking Flags

Reproducible on Aurora 38.0a2 (Build ID: 20150318004012) and Nightly 39.0a1 (Build ID: 20150318055750) with e10s disabled
Affected platforms: Mac OS X 10.9.5, Windows 7 x64, Ubuntu 14.04 x32

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Aurora/Nightly.
2. Click Hello icon.
3. Click 'Share your screen' icon.
4. Select 'Share my Tabs'.
5. Enter fullscreen.

Since the expected result is not quite sure here, e.g.: e10s, EME and 'Please rate Firefox' infobars are not displayed in fullscreen, I tend to say that the info bar shouldn't be visible in fullscreen.
Can you attach a screenshot of what you are seeing? I went through the steps on OSX 10.10.3 and it seems fine to me that a bar appears (it's basically the entire browser without the Menubar and Dock.

Apparently EME`s infobar has the same behavior as tab sharing infobar which I think is not the right one. All similar infobars should behave the same when switching Firefox in fullscreen.

I'd argue that for Tab Sharing, it's important to keep it visible on the screen until the user acknowledges it as a reminder that what they are doing is visible to other parties.

Phlsa, what is your opinion?

Hm, I agree on the tab sharing info bar (especially since it is user-initiated and not just something that Firefox throws at you).

Do all other info bars share that behavior or are those special cases?

Oh, and I just realize that you answered that question in comment 0 :)

Is there a case for the EME bar to remain visible in case the user has full screened a video that can't be played because EME is disabled?
Yes, I would say the EME bar should be displayed as well.

Sevaan could you file a bug for that to be implemented then? I'm off closing this bug as INVALID, because this is working as intended.
