    If there is an embedded video on a webpage, on my 21" iMac on Yosemite, if I resize the browser’s window (the browser's window does not fill an entire screen) and click to maximize the player, the player maximizes to fill the webpage.

    On my 5K iMac, when I do the same, it goes into the full screen mode. In other words, it resizes the browsers window and fills an entire screen. Is there a way to make it behave like it does on the 21" iMac?

    Thank you.

    In Yosemite the new default for the green circle is full screen. Hold ALT/OPTION while clicking on the circle to get the old behaviour back.

    Is the small iMac updated from an earlier OS? Maybe the new Yosemite behaviour doesn't apply if you upgrade from an earlier OS. The 5K iMac comes with Yosemite by default so you get the new behaviour.
