Whenever going to Full Screen mode on the new site, the search/information bar doesn't minimize properly. In fact, it plasters itself all over the middle of the screen! Here's a Screenshot.

Windowed mode however, does work fine. It requires me to resize the browser window to the full size of the monitor, and is not an ideal solution.

Yes, I understand I could just use a different browser. I like Safari and don't want to use a different browser.

@dsale: How about windowed mode and pressing F11?

Unfortunately, pressing F11 was not effective. It served to bring the screen back to normal mode, not to make the splash information go away.

what safari version and OS?


#5 Edited by DSale (140 posts) -


Mac OS X version 10.6.8

Safari 5.1.7 (6534.57.2)

UPDATE: Also, this only seems to happen on the page for the video. I am able to go full-screen if the video is featured on the main page just fine.

Bump for visibility. This issue still occurs for me every day.

Oh geezus. I'll take a look. I need to reinstall 10.6 on one of my machines or get safari 5 some other way. Kind of a bummer that Apple was unable to give 10.6 users Safari 6. I'll see what I can do. I may just be able to hide that menu completely when in fullscreen mode. HTML5 fullscreen is supposed to do this automatically but clearly its not doing it in Safari 5.
