If you keep your dock fixed and try to turn a web browser video FULL SCREEN, you get this result (at least on Firefox). I sent Apple this bug report with the GM beta but you know how that goes.

I have the same issue on all my Macs. Don’t know if it’s a High Sierra issue or if Firefox needs to fix it.

Seems to be because of High Sierra, something changed and Firefox can't deal with it, hence why that silly Dockline always shows up

I clicked on the link because I saw something about full screen issues with Sierra. If this thread is only about firefox I'd appreciate a redirection. Thx.

I began having an issue when actively using full screen Google 3D maps in Chrome on Sierra. The pattern is identical every time. First the cursor rapidly becomes unresponsive before it and the entire computer freezes. If I wait a little over 30 seconds (which seems like 3 minutes) it restarts itself.
It has begun doing this when using FCP X however ...I've only recently been active in FCP X ...I may have been that way a month ago when I wasn't using it.

The machine is just few months past one year old. I've got Apple Care
27" iMac 5k i7
AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 MB
SSD
32 GB ram
so I oughta be fine for power.

Anybody else having this issue?

Cheers. xoxo

I was having a problem with fullscreen videos on Chrome on a MacBook Air 11" 2013 with High Sierra. I did some system update today and Safari is OK.

It appears something on High Sierra that is breaking other browsers video playback...

not just other browsers.
even safari on my MacBook Air does distorts video (Youtube for example) until i put the cursor in the screen area, then it comes back to normal.

I just tried Full Screen on my cMP 5,1. I tried both Safari and Firefox. I DO NOT have this issue with HS 10.13.4. Full Screen works fine for me with both browsers.

Just curious, are all your Macs Laptops? If not, what video cards and displays & resolutions?

Is this a laptop?
