Steps to reproduce

  1. Open an article, forexample this:
  2. Go into Reading View
  3. Start playing a YouTube video in the article
  4. Set the video to fullscreen
  5. The whole browser lose all it’s elements and becomes white, the only way to restore it is to minimize and maximize
  6. All content will now be restored except for the video which is completely gone

NOTE: While the video disappears, the audio continues to play. Reloading the Reading View of any site fixes the issue, but it always happens on first opening of a new page
