User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_3) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/46.0.2464.0 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Ensure that you have the latest Nightly Firefox + WebVR addon installed.

1. Navigate to www.mozvr.com
2. Click on goggles to Enter VR mode on any example.
3. Complete permissions steps.
4. View content in VR mode.




Actual results:

Each time you enter VR, you will be presented with the Oculus Health and Safety warning.   This gets pretty annoying when you have to dismiss the warning for every piece of Web VR content.




Expected results:

Although you can disable these warnings using the Oculus setup utility, the better solution would to provide some kind of UI that allows the user to dismiss the warning for every subsequent request of VR content or even disable it completely.

Of course I understand we're likely constrained by Oculus terms on displaying these warnings, but I'm hoping that there might be a middle ground solution that can be had:   Perhaps displaying these warnings once per browsing session, or on a per origin basis?

When CV1 Oculus hardware ships in 1Q 2016, it will be bundled with the 1.0 Runtime and we will be able to use the Oculus 1.0 SDK.  It is expected that Oculus UI's will change with this release.  Once we have access to the 1.0 SDK, we can revisit this issue.

Oculus CV1 has been shipped and several Oculus SDK revisions have been released.  The health and safety warnings will still automatically display periodically.  Applications such as Firefox have no control over these warnings.  Closing this bug as there is nothing we can do here and this is expected behavior for the Oculus Home platform.
