We've gotten reports that the toggle is annoying when it appears overtop of a video when the mouse is also over the video, but when the user is passively watching the video instead of interacting with it.

Sites like YouTube and Vimeo address this by waiting some number of seconds after the last mousemove event, and then hiding the controls even if the mouse is still within the video region. We should consider doing the same thing.

Verified - fixed on latest Beta 70.0b6 (64-bit) on Windows 10 x64 - enforce pref to true.
The toggle will be hidden after a short period of no mouse activity when the cursor is on the video.
