Some months ago Firefox started prompting when i went into full screen mode : Allow or deny - it's irritating. I wantt o allow always without the prompt.

I know about Tools>page info>permissions but that is only url by url.

I found something that worked in here before, but it seems to have reset when firefox restarted. And i can't find the method this time around!

Thanks

You can manage the full screen permission via "Tools > Page Info > Permissions" or via the about:permissions page. You can look at this pref on the about:config page.
  • full-screen-api.approval-required

This is the method - it doesn't really explain it - but what you should do is open a new window type about:config in the URL space up to and then find the full-screen-api.approval-required and click on the true so it turns false.

It took me 3 evenings to find it first time and then it only worked until firefox was restarted.

It shouldn't be that hard.
