Details

(Whiteboard: [platform-rel-Youtube])

Reproducible with: 
- Firefox 37 Beta 7 - BuildID: 20150324194038
- latest Firefox 38 Aurora - BuildID: 20150325004010
- latest Firefox 39 Nightly - BuildID: 20150324030207

Reproducible on: Windows 7 x64 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Firefox with a fresh profile and open a Youtube Video list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqb4I7ODTZ8&list=RDpqb4I7ODTZ8.
2. Go to fullscreen.
3. Click next.
4. Click on the cog wheel and change all settings, for example:
- set maximum resolution (non automatic)
- turn subtitles off
- change speed (e.g. 1.5)
- turn annotations off
5. Close the settings and then exit fullscreen (click button or press ESC).

Expected results:
Player exits fullscreen and video continues playing with same custom settings from step 4.

Actual results:
Player exits fullscreen but video continues playing with default settings. Custom settings from step 4 are not kept.

Notes:
- this is not a recent regression as it shows the same way in Firefox 35 and 36 (when setting the HTML5 player for youtube from https://www.youtube.com/html5)
- sometimes the results differ slightly:
     * sometimes custom resolution is kept
     * sometimes the video restarts from the beginning
     * sometimes custom speed and resolution are kept, but options for subtitles and annotations disappear altogether
- this seems to work fine when playing single videos, it is just when we play videos from a list that the issues show
- I'm adding this to bug 1121280 monitoring fullscreen issues
It is also reproducable on Chrome Canary. Should be a bug of Youtube, not us.

@Harald - With Donovan no longer looking into YT bugs, would you mind taking a quick look at this?

We'll bring this up during the re-occuring Youtube meeting as soon as we pick up the meetings again.

Florin, can you test this again? Seems to WFM.

I'm still able to easily reproduce this (for Annotations and Subtitles settings) on Windows 7 x64, using:
- Firefox 46.0 (Release) - BuildID: 20160421124000
- Firefox 47.0 Beta 1 - BuildID: 20160425205003
- latest Firefox 48 Aurora - BuildID: 20160427004105
- latest Firefox 49 Nightly - BuildID: 20160426044609
- latest Chrome - v50.0.2661.87 m
- IE 11 - v11.0.9600.18059

Steps to reliably reproduce:
1. Open Firefox with a fresh profile
2. In a new tab open this Youtube Video list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqb4I7ODTZ8&list=RDpqb4I7ODTZ8.
3. Go to fullscreen.
4. Click Next.
5. Click on the settings cog wheel and change these settings:
- Annotations=OFF
- Speed=1.25 (can set anything really)
- Subtitles=OFF
- Quality=144p (can set anything really)
6. Close the settings and then exit fullscreen (click button or press ESC).

Expected results:
Player exits fullscreen and video continues playing with same custom settings from step 5.

Actual results:
Player exits fullscreen but only the Speed and Quality settings are kept. Annotations and Subtitles are switched back to ON.

IE behavior is identical to Firefox, while Chrome also resets the Quality setting in addition to Annotations and Subtitles.

OK, for me subtitles got turned back on (my earlier tests only changed speed and quality) on OSX.

Given that this is busted across all browsers this is really just a buggy site issue. If someone wants to bring it up with YouTube, that would be cool.
This seems the appropriate place for sending feedback to YouTube.

If it's happening in every browser, it is either on purpose or something they already know.
Feel free to use the feedback link above.

Definitely not a Web Compatibility issue.
