Firefox 42 and previous versions offer a preference in about:config called full-screen-api.approval-required, by toggling its value to false we can able to disable YouTube.com is now fullscreen message. Some developments have happened in version 43: Mozilla has improved full screen notifications experience in Firefox 43.
The dialog appears for a few seconds (unlike to earlier versions, doesn’t ask for permissions) and goes away automatically after that without needing any interaction from the user. But when the user moves the mouse or presses any key on the keyboard, full screen dialog appears again.
