Hello all,
Subject line pretty much says it all. Frustratingly, fullscreen is disabled in my Sea Monkey browser for Youtube (and maybe other video sites too, not sure). Can't find the setting to enable it (and why would a browser want to disable full screen anyway?).
Thanks,
JN

It's disabled by default in SeaMonkey 2.40 as the functionality isn't completely implemented yet (e.g., you'll still see the navigation bar at the top of the full-screen window, same as with hitting the F11 key). It will be enabled by default in the upcoming 2.46 release (hopefully coming soon, plenty of problems due to Mozilla changing the release environment).

For the time being, go into about:config and copy-paste full-screen-api.enabled into the search bar. Double-click on the entry that remains to toggle it to "true" and then full-screen should work.
