Bug? Menu Bar Not Accessible in Safari After Watching Full Screen Video

Hi everyone,
I have had this Not accessible menu bar problem time to time while using Safari, and I finally figured out what caused it. It always happens right after you go to a full screen video mode, and then get back out, and now when you move the mouse curser to the top, menu bar doesn't show. Then a way to fix is by using the 4 finger gesture to go back to the desktop screen, and come back to safari (not too fast) and menu bar is again accessible. Why is apple not fixing this bugs? I have seen more thread about menu bar gone, so it's not just me.

Hit the escape key to exit full screen.
That may be a "works as expected/designed," but once you've exited Full Screen View, then reenter Full Screen View and play a video in full screen mode, the window switches out of Full Screen to display the video in full screen video mode. It doesn't stay in Full Screen view, like it is the first time around.
Esc exits full screen video mode, but you still cannot access the slide-out menu bar with the button. Repeatedly pressing Esc does not exit Full Screen View, either. This only appears on the first invocation of Full Screen view and video mode. Once you exit Full Screen, the window behaves differently.
Note that we have determined this is only affected by HTML5 video. I have to do some more testing to figure out if it is ClickToPlugin that is causing the issue.
What's a good source for straight HTML5 video?

  • Menu bar sometimes doesn't show up on full screen apps??

    sometimes when i take google chrome,utorrent, etc apps to full screen the menu bar doesn't pop up no matter how much i click at top... i cant even take the apps out of the full screen mode (not even from the keyboard shortcut)... after i log out and log in it starts working fine untill its stops working again....

    Google Chrome and Mac OS are not the best of friends.  There have been a number of reports regarding the incompatibility and I suggest that you consider another browser.  Firefox, Safari and Opera are all good alternatives .
    Utorrents are an open invitation to problems and are excellent vehicles to introducing malware into your MBP.  I recommend that you do not use them.  To continue, you do so at your own peril.

  • Is there a way to continue an image sequence after a full screen video has played?

    Any help with this would be really appreciated

    Assuming the video is auto-play, you can put the video in the first state of an MSO, and then put the image sequence in the second state of the MSO. Then set the MSO to auto-change with a duration that equals the length of the video. This works if your video is shorter than the max auto-change duration we allow.
    Having said that, this is a pretty bad idea from a performance perspective if your video and MSO are the full size of the screen. You'll force the app to load a ton of content into memory and performance will suffer.

  • NB100 touchpad scroll bar stops working after exit full screen mode youtube

    I have few Toshiba laptops, satellite, and now netbook100.
    All of them share one problem, touchpad scroll bar:
    It will stop working after exit full screen mode in youtube.
    Here is how to reproduce the incident:
    1. using any mainstream browser, start playing a youtube video, click full screen button at the bottom right corner of the video.
    2. click on the [cross] to exit the full screen mode. (next to full screen button.)
    3. check if you scroll bar still functioning.
    4. a reboot will restore the function.
    Currently, Im on vista, I believe in XP you will have the same problem.
    Searching in google (touchpad scroll bar stops full screen youtube) will return more people share the same question but no answer.
    Environments: win xp all, win vista all.
    Windows all most updated driver, touch pad driver up to date.
    This is not a major tech problem but for a netbook, this is very annoying.
    If anyone have this problem or answers, please share it here.
    Thank you in advance.

    I had the exact same problem on my laptop and after a lot of searching, I finally found the simplest solution that really works for me so here goes:
    Once you exit the full screen video and the scroll pad has stopped working, click once anywhere on the youtube page(just to unfocus from the video) and press the spacebar button on your keyboard twice.
    Et voila, your scroll pad should be working again. Beats the hassle of having to log off everytime.
    Hope this helps

  • No sound when watching full-screen movies or TV shows in iTunes after update to 11.1

    After updating to iTunes 11.1, any full-screen movies or TV shows I try to play on my Thunderbolt display with my MacBook Pro have no audio. If I plug in speakers or headphones, I get audio, just not from the Thunderbolt display. Audio works fine from MBP.
    Weird thing is, if I plug in other speakers or headphones and then *unplug* them, the Thunderbolt display's speakers start working again. Every time you start a new show or movie, though, you have to do this again after the full-screen video opens on the display.
    Really weird. I obviously suspect i has something to do with the 11.1 update to iTunes 'cause audio works just fine through the display for iTunes music and other content and for the web and all other apps and games, whether they're in full-screen mode or not.
    Keep checking Software Update hoping to see that "1" badge pop up on the App Store, lol.
    Anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks allen222! I've been banging my head against this issue as well - glad to hear it's fixed in Mavericks - was planning to upgrade shortly.

  • My cursor does not disappear when watching full screen movies

    I have a rMBP running Mountain Lion, everything is up to date. Like I said when watching full screen videos my cursor arrow does not dissapear. I am new to OSX so is this normal or do I have my settings set up wrong. Its not a huge deal, just getting more annoyed with each video, thanks for your help.

    I have the same problem, but in addition, if the cursor doesn't disappear completely the video control menus stay glued to the bottom of the full screen.  I may have to switch back to my pc to watch.....

  • Menu Bar items invisible in Safari full screen mode

    I have a brand new MacBook Pro 13" Retina, mid-2014 (the MGX72). When I use Safari in full screen mode, then move the cursor to the very top of the screen, which is supposed to bring back the Menu bar, a blank space representing the Menu Bar appears, and if I move the cursor to any place on that blank space and click, I see the items/options associated with Menu Bar items. So it's like the Menu Bar items are there, but they're invisible. This has to be a glitch of some type. My MacBook Air doesn't do this; the Menu Bar items appear normally, as they should. Is there a fix for this? All the usual suspects for bringing Safari out of full screen mode work fine, but that's not the idea. The Menu Bar items are supposed to become visible and they do not.

    No, dont return it, its a glitch in Safari, and VERY annoying. I first would have to Force Quit Safari, but later learned to keep hovering the mouse in the upper right corner, even tho nothing, yeah nothing,,,,is visible.
    Keep the mouse there, and after a bit, you will see the little arrows pointing in, hit them.
    But to keep this from happening again, Im not sure.
    So anybody with further info, please post it here.

  • Safari status bar disappears.  I have tried clicking on show status bar and it will only appear when I move the cursor to the top of the screen.  I can not minimize the open page only full screen or close the browser.  Any idea how the rectify this

    Safari status bar disappears. I have tried clicking on show status bar, under the View tab and it will only appear when I move the cursor to the top of the screen. I can not minimize the open page, only full screen or close the browser. Any idea how the rectify this issue?

    One enters and exits full-screen with control+command+F keys. This is on the View menu in Safari. Optionally, the green traffic light in your browser title bar, if you roll over it, has the full-screen control it it. While in full-screen mode with Safari, moving your mouse pointer virtually up, and off-screen reveals the Safari title bar again, and you can click the green traffic light to exit full-screen mode.
    You can hide/show the status bar by simply typing command+/. This too, is on the Safari View menu. and in 10.10.1 — it works reliably for me.

  • Menu bar not appears in some applications.

    Hi, all!
    I have a strange problem and really need help:
    top menu bar not appears, when i start some applications.
    For example, Numbers, keynote, quicktime and, in the end, Finder!
    Problem solves when i replace the .app file of the application with the file from another computer, but it appears again with another application. No errors, no messages, just no menu bar in the top.
    I don't know why it happens and don't know how to diagnose this problem.

    Sometimes something as simple as restarting the computer will resolve system quirks. If that does not work, boot from your install disc & run Repair Disk from the utility menu. To use the Install Mac OS X disc, insert the disc, and restart your computer while holding down the C key as it starts up.
    Select your language.
    Once on the desktop, select Utility in the menu bar.
    Select Disk Utility.
    Select the disk or volume in the list of disks and volumes, and then click First Aid.
    Click Repair Disk.
    Restart your computer when done.
    Repair permissions after you reach the desktop-http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=25751

  • When safari is in full screen mode and I move the mouse to the top of the screen to bring up the menu bar and the bookmark bar, it does nothing.  Is anyone else having this issue?

    When safari is in full screen mode and I move the mouse to the top of the screen to bring up the menu bar and the bookmark bar, it does nothing.  Is anyone else having this issue?

    I just tested that since I hardly ever use full screen mode, this was the first time since I upgraded to Mountain Lion, and it worked fine for me.
    Try shutting Safari down and see if that changes anything.
    If that doesn't change anything, try shutting down and then rebooting.

  • When Safari is in full screen, the window slides off screen to the right after a short period of time.  How do I fix this?

    When Safari is in full screen, window slides off screen to the right after a few seconds.  Does not happen if Safari is not full screen.  How do I fix this?

    You are probably inadvertently swiping to another full-screen app. Are you using a magic trackpad? Does this happen without you touching anything?
