Youtube spacebar doing more than pausing a video?

So when I hit the spacebar, not only does it pause the video, but it also does the last thing that I had selected, which 9/10 times is entering fullscreen.

Now, I know I can just click the video to pause/unpause and then it'll be normal from there, but I'm looking for a more permanent solution if there is one.

Lastly, I know K also pauses the video, but after years of using the spacebar, it's gonna take a while to get used to.

    Press K to pause and resume; you'll quickly get used to it.

    Using keyboard shortcuts it presumes you are in full screen. Shouldn't really be a problem, escape reverts to normal.
