When I run my CDF from CDFPlayer or Mathematica I see all additional controls (fast forward, play, pause, etc) when Appearance->"Open" is usede.g.:

Manipulate[x, {x, 0, 1, Appearance -> "Open"}]

When the same CDF is published to the Wolfram Cloud, I find that the controls are not present:

CDF with no controls showing

What is wrong?

It seems to be a small bug in one of recent cloud releases. It used to work correctly.

The good news is that you can fix this by adding AppearanceElements->All or whatever subset you want:

I already reported this problem.
