At the beginning of the summer I started to have a problem with YouTube where the progress bar would not disappear in full screen. I just refreshed the page and it would go away.

Now, if I change any video settings, like the quality, it will do the same thing. I have to refresh the page again.

After a while it started to not fix after I refreshed the page.

Why is it doing this?

What you do is hover your mouse to the lower left corner of the screen where the play button is, the progress bar should disappear in 1-3 seconds.
