It disappears on Netflix for me provided that I move it off the overlay. I'm using Mac OS X version 10.12 and Firefox nightly. The steps I'm using are:

1. Start Firefox on movie URL
2. Move mouse cursor to the middle of the video
3. Press F

Results:

Cursor disappears.
Michael - any idea why you're getting a different result?

@anthony What happens if you still move the cursor after being in fullscreen?

My way is I'm on Netflix, and I click on the fullscreen button of the netflix player. I move the mouse, and it doesn't disappear.

A regression range makes the most sense.

Tracy do you have netflix?

I do have Netflix.  However, I am unable to reproduce this with latest Nightly 57.0a1 (20170906).  If I wait 2-3 seconds the cursor disappears as expected and it returns to visible when the mouse is moved.  Doesn't matter if it's in full video mode or actual full screen.

Erwann - this seems difficult to reproduce. Can you please attach the information from about:support? Do you agree that this is a regression, and if so can you try mozregresion to narrow it down to a specific change?
