Browse PDF plugin in Fullscreen mode lacks an obvious way to get out of Fullscreen mode

Bug Status: New


The Browse PDF plugin in fullscreen mode lacks an obvious way to get out of fullscreen mode.

Seen in 11.2.0 os870/Browse 122.1


  1. Start Browse; open a PDF file in it.
  2. Switch Browse to fullscreen mode.
  3. Attempt to press ESC to get out of fullscreen mode, mouseover the corner where the fullscreen icon was flashing, look for other icons, etc.; it's not obvious if anything will work.

Way found to get out of fullscreen mode:

  • Make the Sugar frame appear, and move the mouse cursor over said frame.
  • Press the ESC key. (The ESC key also works without gimmicks when not in the PDF reader on normal web pages. Again this doesn't seem to be explained anywhere.)
