Still can't get out of fullscreen mode in TenFourFox 24

Latest: I tried another "workaround." I went to Safari and got up a YouTube page on Safari. I put it in fullscreen mode and then used "Escape" to get it out of fullscreen mode. That worked for Safari. But when I went back to TenFourFox it was still in fullscreen mode, not on a YouTube page, and no way to get onto YouTube again, or to get anywhere else. Emergency: I can't get anything done without cumbersome workarounds until I can get TenFourFox out of fullscreen mode!

Whoa, this appears to be a TenFourFox (24) problem at large. Now EVERYTHING in TenFourFox is in fullscreen mode and I cannot get to the command line or my bookmarks. Pressing Escape doesn't work. The button is not there because I can't get back to YouTube, because I can't get back to my bookmarks. I tried deleting TenFourFox and re-installing it from the download page, but everything is STILL in fullscreen mode and I can't navigate. Evidently switching to the fullscreen mode in YouTube put something in my computer which stayed there when I deleted TenFourFox. Whatever it is, I need to get rid of it, and this may be something which needs to be fixed so TenFourFox does not allow the fullscreen mode to persist.

The only way I can do any work is using Safari, but that doesn't have all my bookmarks. Thank heavens that my email program is not web-based, or I would not even be able to communicate with you about this.

Still need help!

Had to go to Safari to do this. I started a you-tube video and it gave me an option to go to fullscreen. But there is no option to get out of it, and so I can't get to my Bookmarks, etc. Help!
