    Something that i’ve found weird since Firefox handles the audio/video element is that no Firefox doesn’t display controls when JavaScript is off.
    I know that JavaScript is used to display theses controls but we should make a distinction between JavaScript downloaded from a web site and JavaScript that is used by Firefox itself for its needs.
    There is no security concern while displaying OSD audio/video controls unlike running downloaded script.
    Yes from a developer point of view they are both about running JavaScript but actually the source of the code is not the same : outside vs inside code.
    And from a user point of view loosing OSD audio/video controls when JavaScript is off is a non-sense…
    Thanks !
