Thanks for reporting this.
Schöner can you describe which the actual result you see? 
I've used your testcase but I'm on a Mac platform and I don't see nothing strange.

Yes, everything is fine on Mac and Linux platforms. But on Windows what happens is simply click at flash to play the video closes fullscreen mode and you get the standard browser window.

It's 2 years later now, and this bug is still present in Firefox 41.0.2 for Windows.
Firefox for OSX does not suffer from this bug.
Any chance this will ever get fixed? Would be nice!
