Description

4 years ago
Reproducible with: 
- Firefox 38 Beta 2 - BuildID: 20150406174117
- Firefox 40 Nightly latest - BuildID: 20150406030204
- latest Adobe Flash - 17.0.0.134

Reproducible on: Windows 7 x64, Mac OS X 10.8.5, Ubuntu 14.04 x86

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Firefox with a fresh profile and open a Youtube Video list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM&list=RDy6Sxv-sUYtM.
2. Go to fullscreen.
3. Click next.
4. Let the second video play for 5-6 seconds then exit full screen.

Expected results:
Video returns to default view, and continues to play from where it was before exiting full screen.

Actual results:
Video returns to default view, but restarts from the beginning.

Notes:
- the issue shows the same way in Firefox 29.0.1
- I'm adding this to bug 1121280 monitoring fullscreen issues
Are you using the HTML5 video player or Flash video player? You could check this via right click the video and see the context menu. I guess you are using HTML5 video player, then this bug should be unrelated to Flash.
It seems that the video is reloaded, but it returns to the previous position immediately after the reload. And this behavior is identical between Firefox and Chrome on my machine.

For this bug I was using Flash - that's why I added the "[Youtube][Flash]" tags in the title, to differentiate from the HTML5 player. Indeed I also get this with the HTML5 player (this is mentioned in another bug), but not as often as with the Flash player (which is almost always).
