BTW,I can see this problem on my nightly. uses jwplayer v6.8. To trace the behavior back to version 6.8 (about 2.5 years ago), I found these lines of code [0]. For android, it should run into _isMobile block, however, it does something make no sense for Fennec(all version) to toggle fullscreen. In other hand, it was doing right on webkit based browser(see line: 373). 

It seems the only way is to try to ask upgrade jwplayer's version, otherwise we could not help with this issue.  
By the way, [1] is the latest fullscreen implementation of jwplayer, it should work fine.

Thanks for your super fast check!
I will try to talk to liveleak to see if they can upgrade their JW player.

This issue is a duplicate of
I tried to contact them a couple of times. My latest attempt was 21 days ago, where I had a human replying to me. I sent a message.

Thanks Karl!
This seems to be fixed now -- fullscreen button works as expected.
