- This is a follow-up issue of bug 1222669.

[Affected versions]:
- Firefox 48 Beta 3
- latest Nightly 50.0a1
- latest Aurora 49.0a2

[Affected platforms]:
- Windows 7 32bit
- Windows 10 64bit
- Mac OS X 10.11
- Ubuntu 16.04 64bit

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Open . 
2. Right click on the audio controls and select Hide Controls. 

[Expected result]:
- The controls bar is hidden, only the audio container is displayed (or the Hide Controls option does not appear in the context menu, as implemented in bug 1222669 for standalone audio files). 

[Actual result]:
- The control bars and the container are no longer visible on the screen. There is no way to show the controls again, the tab must be reloaded.

[Regression range]:
- It is not a regression, it reproduces since Firefox had support for playing Opus files 

[Additional notes]:
- For the standalone audio files, the problem is fixed by bug 1222669. 
- The page from this bug contains 2 audio files, isn't standalone. The problem should be also fixed for those files which are not standalone.
