Full-Screen mode for Plex Media Player not working correctly on macOS High Sierra

BadBones69BadBones69 Posts: 23Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Description:
Updated to the newest Plex Pass Plex Media Player on my MacBook Pro. Now when I leave the app in full-screen mode and quite out it is fine. But when I reopen it the full screen is broke and is stuck in a partial full screen and doesn't show top bar and using the Cmd+Crtl+F it doesn't fix it at all.

Server version: 1.11.2.4772 on macOS High Sierra

App Version: Plex Media Player 2.4.1.787

Steps to reproduce:
1. Opened Plex Media Player in Desktop Mode. Example

  1. Click the green fullscreen button to make it go into full-screen mode. button
    Full-Screen Mode

  2. Quite out with Cmd+Q.

  3. Open Plex Media Player and it will try to open but then fail and do a weird animation. (There is where the attached Gif comes in.)

Expected: Should go right into full-screen mode just fine and have no problems.

Actual: The application does a weird minimize animation and then doesn't allow full-screen mode.

PS: I am very sorry for double posting this. The last discussions I had I marked someone's post as an answer by mistake and so I don't think people were looking at it due to that.

    Just updated to Plex Media Player v2.6.0.803 and this is still an issue. Was there any possibility of this getting a fix or at least a responds about it?

    I also have this annoying issue, so I guess I'm just adding myself to the thread. Although I see its been over a month with no response..

    Posting in the Plex Media Player forum instead of the Plex Media Server forum probably increases your chances of getting an answer.

    It is posted in the macOS section it says.

    Also just updated to 2.7.0.806 and it still is happening.

    MacOS-subsection of the Media Server Section.

    Plex Media Player subsection is OS agnostic. You can find it here: https://forums.plex.tv/categories/plex-media-player

    Ah, well I have already posted this 2x and don't think posting it a 3rd time would be good.

    Just got a new MacBook Pro 2017 and it was Sierra and this bug didn't happen. But after updating to High Sierra it started to happen again. So it is something to do with High Sierra.

    Just tested this on version 2.9 of the Plex Midea Player and the issue is still there. Hope this gets fixed soon.

    Hi guys, I've created a Github issue for somebody to look into this.

    Awesome, can't wait for it to be fixed. Is there a public link to the issue or no?

    Edit: Found the link.

    I was wondering if this was bothering anyone else as well. When I open full screen I have to click it again because when I open Plex it doesn't say that I'm using the program until I actually click in the window. It's sort of like the same problem as yours. Thanks for writing it up.

    This is the reason I stop using it.
