  • Connect Laptop to external monitor (extended desktop mode)

  • Now move to or open another application (Eg:App store) from original screen .
    In screenshare video , You will see other changes in the screen in only quarter of the screen as in the attached image

Actual results:

In screenshare video , You will see other changes in the screen in only quarter of the screen as in the attached image

Note : This issue is not present in chrome.
Browser : Firefox latest browser(70.1) , old browsers too have the issue

Expected results:

Changed application should appear in full of the screenshare video

I attempted to reproduce your issue, got stuck at sharing my screen and ran out of time. Can you please answer some questions that might help me reproduce it later, please?

  1. in step 3: Which application do you open in full-screen mode on the original screen?
  2. in step 4: Which app do you use to share your screen? Hangouts? Does it happen with any screen-sharing app?
  3. in step 5: you already have an app opened in full-screen mode, so the exact steps would be to exit full-screen mode of the app opened in step 3 and open another one (like App Store) in full-screen mode, right?

Thank you for your contribution!
