    I run World of Warcraft in full screen and I like to switch between it and Firefox. What commands can use to switch away from an app that has full screen. I'm used to using Command - Tab but it doesn't work while I am in this game, what else can I use to switch to another app?

    Well not sure if this will work for you or not, and it kind of a workaround, but most blizzard games allow you to do a "command m" to get out of full screen mode, thus allowing you to switch to another application. Again not sure if this is what you wanted or not.

    put it in windowed mode maximized then use Command + Tab
    either that or control + 1,2,3,4 or right / left arrow to switch spaces

    Does the Esc key reduce the full screen game window? If yes, then use that, followed by Cmd-Tab.
