Open Firefox, hit F11 to enter full screen; nothing happens.

Actual results:

Firefox stayed in non-full screen mode instead of switching.


Expected results:

The browser should have entered full screen as expected.

Restarted Firefox after the issue above happened and it started in full screen mode, unable to exit from there (so the same issue as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1184007).
Same question as in bug 1184007 - if you use Firefox's safe mode, can you reproduce? ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode )

Hi Marcus,

I didn't managed to reproduce this issue on the latest release(42.0) not latest Nightly(45.0a1)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0
Build ID: 20151029151421

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20151208030212

The bug was also not reproducible on your specified version of Firefox(41.0) 

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0
Build ID: 20150917150946

Could you please try to reproduce this on the latest release(42.0) and latest Nightly(45.0a1) and provide the results?
Also, please try to reproduce with a new clean Firefox profile(maybe safe mode enabled) and provide the results(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems).

Thanks,
Paul.
