@Deleted It seems to be device related. All channels. I've submitted feedback multiple times.

@cjc2112 I tested it on a few more. It is device related. I want to recommend the browser to some of my friends, but i wont if the browser wont go into fullscreen.

I really hope a solution is found soon, because it's really annoying to watch videos without being able to go fullscreen. Here are the specs of our laptops if this helps.
