When in DOM full-screen mode, navigating to a new page (i.e. clicking on a link) or changing tab to another document, should exit DOM full-screen mode.
We must also exit full-screen mode when the browser window loses focus (a la ALT + TAB).
(In reply to Chris Pearce (:cpearce) (Mozilla Corporation) from comment #1) > We must also exit full-screen mode when the browser window loses focus (a la > ALT + TAB). Is there not a way that we can stay in fullscreen mode even if the browser window loses focus. Flash recently added multi-monitor support to allow full-screen to stay in full-screen even when not in focus, and Silverlight has offered this feature for a much longer time. I use it to pin videos on one monitor while doing work on another monitor.
The worry is that if we don't exit full-screen mode when we lose focus, the full-screen page could then spoof the user's desktop without them being aware of it.

I'm having a hard time thinking of attacks if the desktop is spoofed. I believe the proposal is to restrict a majority of the keyboard input while in full-screen mode. If that is the case, I can see a clickjacking-like attack, but not a password/phishing attack in full-screen mode * spoof the desktop * convince user to click on the fake desktop, executing some action This would be slightly more convincing than a normal clickjacking attack due to the browser chrome being hidden.
Boris: Is the best way to detect navigation while in full-screen mode to add an nsIWebProgressListener when full-screen is requested (in nsDocument::RequestFullScreen), and exit full-screen on document start loads and location change. We can remove the listener on exit full-screen. Or is there a better way?
Or can we add a hook to nsDocument::OnPageHide() to exit full-screen? We can add a blur listener in browser.js to ensure we exit full-screen on change tab or alt+tab.
> Or can we add a hook to nsDocument::OnPageHide() to exit full-screen? Do you want to exit full-screen when the navigation starts, or when the old page is hidden? OnPageHide is somewhat better, I think, because it would do the right thing if a subframe which has a full-screen element is removed from the DOM, right?
One other thought. If you exit full-screen OnPageHide, you can also enforce the invariant that a hidden document auto-denies fullscreen requests. If you exit it on navigation start, then you have to worry about a new fullscreen request between then and actual unload, right?
OnPageHide seems to work, and it does indeed catch the case when full-screen is requested after navigation but before unload. We still need to explicitly handle the case where full-screen is requested after unload, as in Jesse's test case in bug 697636, that still fails with the OnPageHide change.
Yes; like I said we should auto-deny requests after OnPageHide.
Part 1, exit full-screen mode on page hide. This happens when a docshell navigates.

Part 2 (of 2), exit full-screen upon open new tab, change tab, close tab, or window deactivate.

Comment on attachment 571251 [details] [diff] [review] Patch 1 v1: Detect navigation > nsWeakPtr nsDocument::sFullScreenDoc = nsnull; >+nsWeakPtr nsDocument::sFullScreenRootDoc = nsnull; Worth documenting what these are. >+GetRootDocument(nsIDocument* aDoc) I think this should use GetParentDocument until it hits null, just like the other code that manages full-screen state does. Otherwise GetRootDocument on the document of a display:none iframe will return null, for example, which seems broken to me. r=me with that
