Firefox (or any browser) doesn't need a CSS property in order to control GIF/APNG playback. The current play position isn't even exposed to the web, except indirectly via what frames would get painted to a canvas at a given point in time.  It's perfectly acceptable for a browser to give this sort of control natively, either thru a user setting or thru direct manipulation (stop/start gifs on click automatically).

The only reason to add a CSS property is if we think that page authors need this control, and such control is common enough that things like [`<gif-player>`](https://www.webcomponents.org/element/captaincodeman/gif-player) aren't sufficient.
