I'll give that a try, thanks.

The application works fine in all other browsers I've tested.  It just fails in WebView.  I'll log defects as you suggest.

Subject: Full Screen Mode in JavaFX WebView

I have a custom Java application that uses JavaFX WebView to create a web browser (which uses WebKit).  I am trying to get the browser full screen mode to work (https://fullscreen.spec.whatwg.org/).

How can I get full screen mode to work in WebKit?
[WebView is an Embedded component and current it doesn't have full screen context menu (Like what we see in browser). WebView exposes two api setPrefWidth  & setPrefHeight, you can try setting it to max allowable view port size based on screen resolution. In addition (But I don't suggest), set the stage or group border to 0. But do NOTE that there won't be scroll bars visible, But you can drag the webpage]

I'm also trying to get WebKit's Web Inspector to work in my browser to help me debug this issue.  How can I activate Web Inspector in JavaFX WebView?
[Sorry, Web Inspector is not enabled in this port (Webkit port of JavaFX), alternatively you could  debug the application on Chrome or Safari. If you find a difference in the Rendering, JavaScript or other defect, feel free to log a defect ref https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/OpenJFX/Submitting+a+Bug+Report] 

Thanks for any information.
