    I like the Smart Zoom feature that OS X and Safari has. It allows me to easily doubletap my mouse and Zoom in to whatever I want. I used to do it all the time when I watched YouTube clips, just doubletap and the clip is almost (but not) in full screen. Nice and practical.

    However, that is now impossible. Whenever I smart zoom onto a clip, the "black box" that has the actual clip in it and also the controls gets zoomed, but the clip itself does not follow suit.

    See the attached screenshot to see what I mean.

    I have tried this on a completely new and fresh install of Yosemite.

    Why is this happening and how can I fix it? Is this a known issue?

    My setup is:
    27 inch iMac, Yosemite, Safari 8.02

    Im my own experience, the smart zoom in Yosemite is still buggy. I already avoid to use it, can't find a good work around so far.
