How Can I Kill This Full Screen Ie Notice?

    I'm still getting that stupid prompt at the bottom of my screen when going full screen in video players like YouTube (using IE11 on Windows 7). Even when I click "Always Allow" it never seems to stick. From what I've read, it's because (unlike the Edge browser), IE saves this as part of your history and can be cleared (or in my case, can't be accessed outside a Sandbox). Therefor I'm stuck with it apparently.

    Is there some kind of work around or a separate add-on/app that will kill this when in my Sandbox?

    It may help immensely if you could give any clues as to the "stupid prompt" in question?

    Thanks nullptr, I'm going to try a registry hack. I have exactly one addon installed in IE 11: AdBlockPlus. I'm so sick of closing that popup. I know ABP will not slow down my browsing!
    I only fire up IE 11 once in a while to test any website that I think might have an issue.

    Sorry, I thought the prompt was implied in my description. It's the one that always asks "Do you want to view X site in full screen mode (press ESC to exit)"

    Does this link give you any ideas? https://www.sandboxie.com/InternetExplorerTips

    It would probably help to know what program you're using to sandbox IE.

    The setting for each sites full screen option is stored in the registry key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\FullScreen\AllowDomains
    So each time you empty the sandbox, you flush the sandbox's registry hives and with it your full screen preferences.
    Try setting the preference with IE running outside the sandbox. Hopefully then it will persist inside the sandbox.

    If thats your only browser issue, your in front of the pack!

    This seems to be more of a IE issue than a sandbox issue. I ran a test outside the sandbox where I allowed all first and third party cookies. But even then IE has no consistency. Sometimes it didn't give me the prompt after I "Allowed Always", but most the time it just kept doing it. Unless someone has some thoughts on this bug (which is exactly what it seems like), I'll just have to live with the annoying prompt.

    How often are you cleaning cookies after net sessions?

    Normally I do maintenance once a month. But sandbox doesn't allow cookies to be stored outside the sandbox unless you want to (which I don't). But I've tried this several ways, and nothing works unfortunately. Why do you ask?
