TC7 + Firefox --> no fullscreen mode with F11
« on: March 22, 2016, 02:27:53 AM »
Hello,

i have a problem with TC7 version and Firefox 45.x.
The fullscreen mode of firefox (F11) is not working anymore. The menu bar disappears, but tabs and the address bar are still visible. Then firefox is "hanging" with very slow response if you click or navigate with the keyboard. Restart of firefox is necessary.

I tested all other window manager. Problem exists. TC runs under xvesa, xorg has the same problem. I have no idea what issue this could be.

Please help.

Works here.
Have you tried deleting your profile (~/.mozilla/firefox/blabla.default)?

Yes, i tried. Deleting the profile is not the solution. I tested it with fresh installations on 2 systems (hardware and vm): Coreplus 7 + latest firefox (with getLatest script). Both platforms have the issue. Verry strange.

True, I booted with  base norestore  and saw the same behavior.
So far, I had no success figuring out what's missing.

I saw the same behavior using  flwm_topside  on  Xvesa  but switching to Openbox (Exit to prompt ; tce-load -i openbox ; startx) fixes it for me.

Thank you Misalf for testing.
Yes, after the issue under flwm_topside you have to delete the firefox profile and then after switching to openbox the problem is fixed.
