.full Screen enabled on new about:home causes issues (Full Screen Add-On)
See screenshot. Install Full Screen Mobile Add-On (top add-on @ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/full-screen-252573) and then visit about:home The navigation and address bar are lost and this is going to cause confusion to users when this hits Beta and Release and those that use this popular add-on.

Sriram, could you have a look at this one?

This bug is seen on 25 too. 1. Go to a page from about:home. 2. Turn on fullscreen. 3. Hit back to about:home. 4. HORRRRROR! Oh nooooooo!
You're right I see this too on Firefox 25. What action should we do here if any as a result?
To work around this, I'll try modifying my add-on to automatically exit full-screen mode while on about:home.
I don't think this is a bug we fix in Firefox. Firefox is doing the right thing in that it only supports fullscreen in a "single page" fashion. We don't really support being in fullscreen all the time. We don't have an "Extension Compatibility" bugzilla category or I'd move it there. Renom'ing for tracking. I don't think this should track.

We should look into removing code to handle window.fullScreen
Don't think we should relnote either given comment 6 and that we have enough Known Issues for Firefox for Android that have wider impact.
We have completed our launch of our new Firefox on Android. The development of the new versions use GitHub for issue tracking. If the bug report still reproduces in a current version of [Firefox on Android nightly](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.fenix) an issue can be reported at the [Fenix GitHub project](https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/). If you want to discuss your report please use [Mozilla's chat](https://wiki.mozilla.org/Matrix#Connect_to_Matrix) server https://chat.mozilla.org and join the [#fenix](https://chat.mozilla.org/#/room/#fenix:mozilla.org) channel.
