Default Weird problem in the browser and stock video player, please help.

I have the Note 3 9005 version and in the stock browser I have the option for full screen ticked. But when I scroll down the page the address bar doesn't disappear, so no true full screen mode. The status bar is hidden though.

Also in the stock video player when I touch the screen to bring up the controls, it doesn't auto hide after a few seconds like it should and doesn't disappear even when I tap the middle of the screen. I have to press the rotate button to change the orientation and then once again to go back to landscape mode.

Could these 2 issues be related? Any solutions will be appreciated.

I have the same problem with the video player. Only workaround is to rotate it portrait then back to landscape, controls disappear ...

Do you have the browser problem too? The address bar doesn't auto hide on mine like it should.

Anyone else facing these issues? Possible fix?

Yup, just tested. Address bar stays on persistent even though full screen option checked under browser settings ....

Though this one isnt as irritating as the video playback due to the large screen..


Any fix or workaround ?

Did the rotate workaround work for you as well for the video playback ?

Yep, that's the only way to rotate the screen for me too.

So can we assume the browser and the video player issues are linked?

Even though it's a large screen i still wanna utilise all of it...

Anyone else with this problem? I'm so used to full screen browsing on my note 2 but I can't get it to work on the note 3.

Are there any other browsers that have a proper full screen mode?

Full screen browser is only meant to hide the status bar. It says so in the settings!
