How can I permanently disable the "allow?" pop-up when I go full screen?
I want to be able to expand web page pictures to full screen without one of two annoying pop-up mini wdws always popping up.
-One is the instructional: "______ is now fullscreen; press esc. at any time to exit fullscreen"
-The second is along the same lines, something about: "allow ________ to be fullscreen?" with a checkbox to 'allow'
I KNOW how to exit full screen. I don't want to be reminded for a full second every single time I expand a picture. As far as allowing a website to expand a picture to full screen, if I click full screen, obviously I want to engage full screen on that web page. In fact, why would firefox even give the option to disallow the function? It seems like shooting a spider with a shotgun---when there's no spider in the first place.

This happens every time you go fullscreen? Because as far as I know once you allow the website to go fullscreen once it should not ever happen again on that same website.
By the way, I recommend you update to the latest Firefox 26 to avoid any future problems and to enhance your security

This happens as part of the full screen permissions as you can inspect on the "Tools > Page Info > Permissions" window for the current web page.
If you enter full screen mode via a button on a web page that uses the full screen API then you get this notification.
There are full-screen-api.* prefs tied to this feature that you can inspect on the about:config page.
Neither of these replies helped me (but thank you for trying).
I simply want to set whatever needs to be set so that I never have to look at either of the full screen permission/information mini pop-ups ever again.
Is this really dependent on some setting for each specific webpage?! How utterly bizarre, and what a case of horrible design.
Why would firefox or any other browser care if a webpage is allowed to go full screen? If a user to a webpage clicks full screen on his/her PC, the image/page should just simply go full screen---period.
It's like if I turned on the radio in my car and the radio would first ask me "Did you really mean to turn on the radio?" or "You are turning on the radio now. To turn off the radio, just rotate the knob counter clockwise".
Tell me this isn't as freakishly stupidly designed as it sounds.
I'm only seeing the message about how to leave full screen mode and not the notification if you want to allow the website to use full screen mode. I don't know if there is a way to hide this Exit message and it should disappear automatically. You can suppress the notification asking for permission to enter full screen mode once you have allowed the website (Tools > Page Info > Permissions).
