Add option to hide status pop-up when in fullscreen

Unread post by fillerup » 2018-09-30, 13:26

If i'm watching e.g. a youtube video in full screen and it is still loading, the status pop-up will appear each time it loads new data. can we get an option to hide the pop-up in such situations?

Status Bar Preferences (via either Tools menu, or toolbar button) >
Advanced > "Hide status popup in full-screen HTML5 video"

mine is already ticked (i believe it is ticked by default, as i never configured this setting). also happens if the other option (detect fullscreen) is selected

That setting works for me.

What happens in safe mode/extensions disabled?

already tried it in safemode, no luck. but you got me thinking to try it in a new profile and it does work there... looks like i'll have to play the classic game of removing one addon at a time

gonna take some time to catch the culprit, but i'll find it

deleting each addon and their setting didn't work.. still had the issue. making a new profile now and trying one addon at a time, absolute pain in the ass but what can you do

Confirmed, see Issue #803 (UXP).
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!
