Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/15.0 Firefox/15.0a1
Build ID: 20120531030517

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open any local video file (WebM or Theora) in Firefox.
2. Click the Fullscreen button.


Actual results:

Firefox asks my permission to enter fullscreen as usual, but there's no way to remember my desicion. So every time I activate fullscreen for any local video file, I get the same warning.


Expected results:

There should be a checkbox "Remember decision for local content" like it is for any remote host.

I'm not sure if this is Core:Vide/Audio or Core:DOM but I can confirm this on the latest Mac nightly using a local webm video file.

Yes, this is a recent change. The permission manager can't handle local file URI's, so we just require local content to be approved every time.

We don't really want to allow a blanket approval of all local files, that would pose a security risk. We could change to allow *individual* local files to have permanent permissions though.
