Cannot exit from Full-Screen mode without keyboard


Hi there!

Right click when in full screen mode doesn't show any "Exit full screen mode" option...

No way to leave the full screen mode without the keyboard?

I'm running Firefox 3.6.10 in Ubuntu 10.04

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; it; rv: Gecko/20100914 Firefox/3.6.10

Problem seems partially solved: I had the "Navigation bar" hidden to save screen space, if I re-enable it I've got a "back to normal screen" option when right-clicking over it (sorry if the translations from my Italian version of FireFox are not perfect...). But it could be a good idea to have a "back to normal screen" option even when right clicking anywhere in the page...

Exiting full screen is so simple. Just move your mouse to the topmost edge of the screen, preferably to the top right corner or anywhere you see the screen border is sky blue. There you do 'right click' and a menu pops up with 'Exit' link.

You can also click on "Restore Down" button which is located between the "Minimize" and "Close" botton on the top right corner.
