    I always have safari on full screen mode, once I close it, restart or shutdown and then reopen it I have to go to view and select full screen again?

    Thanks

    "close it"

    You mean close the lid?

    On my laptop, with a Safari page in full screen, closing the lid, re-opening it and logging on shows the last open page in full screen.

    I have the same problem with safari. This also occurred in other applications under Mountain Lion. Btw you can just click the blue arrows in the top right corner of the safari window to go to full screen instead of going through the menu.

    On the Safari topic, is the only way to close the bookmarks side menu through the Bookmarks drop down? Why no close by hitting "x" or similar on the side menu itself?

    No, there is a book icon below the back arrow. Click on that to open and close that menu.

    On my Macbook, Safari remembers full screen mode after I close it and reopen it next time.

    You can show and hide the side bookmarks menu by pressing shift-command-L.

    If I force-quit Safari, then start it up again, it shows the last opened page in whatever mode it was in at the time it quit.

    If I exit Safari using the red close button, I am by definition not in full screen mode, so I naturally won't see full screen mode by default when it starts again.

    Make sure you don't have Private browsing enabled. If you quite whilst in this mode, it appears to start up non-full-screen.
