STR : - Open an video, or a page containing a <video>, using the default controls ; - Start playing ; - Seek somewhere in the video. Expected result : - The controls are still shown until the mouse leaves the control area. Actual results : - The controls disappear instantly.
Summary: Controls should be visible if the mouse is over the controls area. → The controls should remain visible after seeking if the mouse is over the controls area.
This is a feature, not a bug. The controls are *supposed* to autohide if there's no movement, except if the mouse is over the controls area.

This bug is specifically about leaving the mouse over the controls after finishing seeking.

Created attachment 626282 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v0 : Don't hide the controls if the mouse is over them. Somehow, |onMouseInOut| is called when the seekbar is clicked, despite being an event on "mouseout". I don't really know if this is expected, but it hides the controls. Thus, I'm afraid this patch is fixing the consequences, not the cause.

This bug seems to have reappeared ( FF 41.0.2 ) Example video: http://i.imgur.com/OVdKGFt.gifv Same as original problem: - Start playing ; - Seek somewhere in the video. Expected result : - The controls are still shown until the mouse leaves the control area. Actual results : - The controls disappear instantly.
Clarification: The controls disappear on both position seek or resuming from a paused state. The controls remain visible when using the volume control, pause button, or full-screen button.
First - it's better to file a new bug (perhaps referencing an old bug) for new issues. This bug was fixed 4 years ago, so if further work needs done it should be in a new bug. (Because it makes tracking fixes difficult, and it's often a different issue, anyway.) In this case, it's an issue with imgur. The site disables the default controls by default, and you have to explicitly enable them to see this at all. But the site seems to remove the |controls| attribute whenever various media events fire. EG, just wait for the video to loop back to the beginning, and this happens. Not an issue with the Firefox video controls.
