    Hi everyone,

    I've been having an issue with YouTube for a while, where the first time I put it in full screen it's fine, but then if I come out of full screen and back in, then I get a white border (a few cm wide) on the right and bottom edges of the screen. Toggling full screen a third time typically fixed it, so while it was an annoyance I didn't bother making a thread about it.

    However, something has now changed (in the past day or so). When I go into full screen now, Safari's scroll bar still appears at the right-hand side of the screen (and if I use it, I can see the comments etc). Toggling in and out of full screen has no effect; I'm no longer seeing the plain white borders, but the scroll bar is refusing to go away, and it's distracting when watching predominantly-dark videos.

    The same thing happens in the guest user account. I'm running Safari 12.0.2 on OS 10.13.6, with a GTX 960 if that matters. Has anyone else run into this? Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Right, looks like YouTube's broken something then. Why don't they test these things?! :mad:

    On Safari you still have the scroll down to comments ability while in full screen?
