But from the problem description, this isn't a modal, but rather
Safari's built-in video player widget set to fullscreen...so an issue
with Apple's implementation rather than the site.

For avoidance of doubt, it would of course be helpful to post a link to
the site / a testcase that exhibits the same behavior.
