Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0
Reproducible on latest Firefox 29 beta 1 (20140318013849). 
Not reproducible on latest Aurora 30.0a2 (20140319004002) where the subtitles size is not modified and latest Nightly 31.0a1 (20140319030201) where the subtitles are missing.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the link with the demo video: while the browser is windowed mode
2. Start the video
3. Maximize the browser to full screen
4. Check the subtitles when displayed in two rows

Actual results:
The subtitles second row is not entirely visible. Please see the screenshot.

Expected results:
The subtitle area should be placed above the controls when the video is played inline (just as they are when video is played full screen)

1. Reproducible also on Mac OS X 10.8 and Ubuntu 32-bit.
2. The issue was introduced in Firefox 29 when the feature landed, so it's not a regression. Will continue investigate to see when it was introduced.

Thanks for catching this Petruta. I thought I landed the patch to fix that in time for FF29, but I guess not.

The easiest way to fix this would be to land Part 8 and 9 of the patches in bug 865407. 1 - 7 made it in to FF29, but 8 and 9 didn't which is causing this.

I'm closing this since we're not turning the pref on until 31 and it's been fixed there.
