Closed, DeclinedPublic


When the user switches to fullscreen via F11, the viewer should automatically switch into fullscreen mode. This would be particularly useful when using it without a mouse, or in an environment where using the mouse is uncomfortable (touchpad etc).

In light of bug 66854, might not be such a good idea.

F11 is not "real" fullscreen mode (see e.g. Firefox bug 794468), so there is no real event; fullscreen would have to be detected by some sort of hack, like listening for F11 or checking for window.outerWidth === screen.width on resize events.

Mass-removing the Multimedia tag from MediaViewer tasks, as this is now being worked on by the Reading department, not Editing's Multimedia team.
