Whenever I try to full screen a video the first time I open the browser, the video will not completely fill the screen. It only happens on firefox and the first time I open the browser. I thought it was my extensions but it was not that. A thread was created on reddit describing the problem I have. I have linked it here. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/rhwuvz/firefox_full_screen_on_win11_always_leaves_some/ I tried to change themes and that also did not work. Not sure what the problem is. Please help.

Well not everyone has this issue and you could see that by looking at the reddit thread. you can see in the screenshot that the full screen does not completely fill my screen. The video does not go to the left and the top of the screen. https://imgur.com/a/2n1Mui0

So what Addon/Extension are you using? Did you install a userChrome.css themes? And considering this is on Win11 that could also be the issue as well.

The issue is not with the extensions. I have uninstalled all extensions and it still does not work correctly. Windows 11 is also not the issue as it appears on windows 10. I believe it has something to do with themes. Changing themes to the alpenglow will resolve the issue for some but it is not a great solution bc you have to use alpenglow inorder for the full screen to function correctly.
