Window sharing does not let users select non-browser windows in full-screen mode
When a user is in full-screen mode, Window sharing only presents the option to share the browser, not any other windows. I suspect because "Full-screen" on a mac is essentially a separate desktop. Preferred solution: We need to find away to share the windows on the other desktop, which takes the user out of full-screen automatically. Less-Preferred Solution: If that is impossible for some reason, then screen-sharing should be disabled in Full-screen with a notice saying something akin to: "Window sharing does not work in full-screen" and a link to exit full-screen mode.
OS: Mac OS X → All
Hardware: x86 → All
Hi Mike, not sure how high to triage this bug. Ideally the preferred solution is an option - depending how complex the reason it's being blocked. Do you have any guesses to cause/complexity to resolve? I'm tempted to put this as "Priority 3 - Average Bug. definitely a problem, but doesn't stop someone from using the product", but may be P2 - depending how often we think folks will be full screen "Priority 2 - Major impact, considering severity × probability. Not a blocker for shipping."
I'd say definitely a P2 since it only affects Mac users and only when they are in full screen mode. Windows users seem unaffected.

Whiteboard: [screensharing] → [screensharing][triage]
We're no longer supporting window sharing in the product.
