VLC fullscreen mode inusable
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

open a video in VLC,
switch to fullscreen,
then move the mouse over the vlc controls bar in the bottom

at this point E resize the window in a strange way, like no fullscreen anymore, making the app unusable in fullscreen

note - part of the problem is vlc doesn't know when it has been un-fullscreened. it doesn't track it's state if the wm forces it to go back to normal, so it keeps its extra control window overlay up. toggling to fullscreen in vlc fixes this by it now thinking it's not.

great, I can confirm the fix

Thanks!
