Display Geometry Settings in Virtual Box In Oracle Virtual Box you can adjust the virtual screen resolution after having installed the Guest Additions simply by dragging the window with the mouse or by choosing full screen mode.

This is a bug in the Flash player. The volume keys on your keyboard are handled by gnome-settings-daemon, which uses a passive grab on the volume keys. The way that X works means that an application needs to have focus in order to receive keypress events, so, what happens when you press the volume keys is that the flash player window sees a FocusOut event ...

If you were using YouTube's HTML 5 player (as the "never ask again" in the popup suggests), the fullscreen setting is managed by Firefox (and therefore has nothing to do with Ubuntu or Gnome). Go to about:permissions (just copy it into your address bar), select www.youtube.com from the list and change the setting in the Fullscreen box.
To be able to scale the screen geometry, and to enable fullscreen mode of a Virtual Box guest Ubuntu we need to install the guest additions: How do I install Guest Additions in VirtualBox?

It seems like the problem reappeared with Chrome version 49. Below is a workaround that will solve the problem until Chrome fixes this bug. It works without disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome (and potentially causing other issues). If compizconfig-settings-manager is not installed, install it by sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager ...
While karthick87 explains how to put VirtualBox in "full screen" mode, you should also install virtualbox-ose-guest-dkms, virtualbox-ose-guest-utils & virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 inside the virtual machine first. (Otherwise only some basic low VGA/VESA resolutions will be available.)
You should check your about:gpu section in Chrome/ium. In older PC's HW Acceleration is disabled by default and you only can enable it by overriding the settings in the about:flags. Open the about:flags in your address bar Look for Override software redendering list Click "Enable" Restart Chrome/ium

If Control+Alt+F1 works you can use it to drop to a hard terminal. From there you can: Try killing the application. I use htop to find and nuke something (sudo apt-get install htop) but you can also just use commands like kill and pkill if you're happy with them. I prefer htop because it lets me see what is schizing out. It's then Control+Alt+F7 (...
You can use Compiz, in particular you have to activate "Window Rules" plugin and in "Full Screen" field you write class=Gedit. Hope it helps.
This option causes drawing to occur directly on the screen rather than drawing off-screen and then copying the drawn content back onto the screen. Thus, yes it can dramatically improve graphical performance. However there can be a draw-back - on some graphics cards/monitors - using this option can result in dramatic flickering. Particularly - this ...
The solution suggested by @Jordan Koplowicz is precise. Elaborate discussion about the same can be found in the link he has posted. There's another way out. Not a solution as such, but it works well. You can run any video in Firefox. After making it full screen it does not collapse. I got this from the link @Jordan Koplowicz has Shared and it works fine for ...
You have a few options for a frozen full screen app : Go to a virtual terminal (CTRL-ALT-F1), issue your killall command on the offending process, then switch back to the GUI (CTRL-ALT-F7). or Create a hot-key to switch to another virtual desktop. You should be able to do that by going to system/preferences/Keyboard Shortcuts. Then scroll down to ...

I had the same problem, but i found a solution. I am using Google Chrome as default browser. When I updated it to Google Chrome 20 it also installed Flash 11.3. So you just need to turn off Flash 11.3 and turn on Flash 11.2. To do that: type in adress bar about:plugins Then at the top left corner click Extended (or smth like that) Find a Flash and you will ...
There is a hack at https://github.com/ali1234/fullscreenhack that works for pepper flash also. It works by hooking into the system calls that flash uses to get the monitor/geometry info and property changes. It's pretty simple to use: First Download the github and extract it (does not matter where). Open a terminal and navigate to the directory. Install ...

Select Yes again, and let it install. ...
Got the same issue ever after the Chrome 40.0.2214.91 release, and though I haven't tried the .93, I can at least confirm the issue is 100% gone in Chrome 41 Beta. Strongly considering sticking to the beta until 41 becomes stable, or at least until it's 100% confirmed a point release fixed the issue.
Compiz is known not to work too well with cube in natty. Get to the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command unity --reset and then go back to wall setting in compiz. And if you will not be able to get to terminal then right click on desktop and create launcher for it - command line is gnome-terminal
This was achieved using devilspie to start darktable maximised, followed by my linked answer to remove the window decoration. Note - I tried this with the devilspie "undecorate" command but that just left an annoying blank space where the decoration would be install devilspie sudo apt-get install devilspie mkdir ~/.devilspie nano ~/.devilspie/darktable.ds ...
If you use the Nvidia proprietary drivers, it is very important to unredirect fullscreen windows, otherwise XVideo will not use sync to vblank and you will see tearing while playing videos. The Nvidia driver manual says: Note that the Xv adaptors will ignore the sync-to-vblank option when drawing into a redirected window.
