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

BadBones69BadBones69 Posts: 16Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

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: on macOS High Sierra

App Version: Plex Media Player

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.
