 Hello, I'm sure there's probably a solution to this somewhere, but
 searching has failed me. Sorry if this has already been addressed, I did
 look as best I could.
 I've loved tor browser's secure features, even if noscript is set to allow
 scripts globally initially (this is not what the ticket is about, I know
 how to adjust that).

 My problem is this:
 Whenever I maximize the window to fullscreen, I would get this "blah blah
 blah, fullscreen mode can allow blah blah blah" at the top. I use a fairly
 standard screen resolution, so it's near impossible for this to actually
 be a security issue with me.
 Normally, I just click the little x, and that's that. Recently, I
 accidentally clicked the ok button, and it's started forcing me back out
 of fullscreen mode automatically.

 How do I disable this from happening, and how do I disable that annoying
 freaking prompt?

 Thanks for your time.
