For some reason, whenever I use a web browser in awesome, it is always fullscreen. And yes, I am in tiling mode. Does anyone have a clue why it is doing this? Thanks.

After last update, Chromium will not go well into fullscreen mode with F11. I must go over the menu of browser to get the browser in fullscreen mode. The header bar with tabs stay always there, if i do not the workaround with mouse clicks.
I have uninstalled and installed again, delete all config folders of chromium and cache. But no luck. Anyone else with the same problem out there?
I am using the VLC browser plugin to play YouTube videos. I am using a two-screen-setup on my PC and I want to watch videos on my second screen while working on the first one. Whenever I activate the full screen mode of the browser plugin, the the first screen is used by default even though I start the fullscreen mode from the secondary screen.
I've managed to get YouTube Flash videos fullscreen by using two tips, but whenever I move the mouse pointer to a different screen (thereby changing the application focus) the fullscreen mode is canceled. Is there some way to ensure that only application focus changes on the same screen cancels the fullscreen mode?
Is it possible to have no 'active window' border when using the fullscreen tiling mode? I find it annoying when watching a movie or other video, as I get a bright border around the screen. It's also useless in fullscreen mode in general. Could anyone help me out?Thanks!
The setup is a single monitor (laptop), openbox, gdm3, chromium, and youtube as an example.
To reproduce, the only thing I need to do is to switch to fullscreen a video, and then hit escape. The video will vanish (I suppose exit from full screen), and continue playing (as I hear the sound). But I can't see the browser's window.
I want to use the onboard keyboard to enter text into a form in a website I have open in firefox. Ideally I want to run firefox in fullscreen mode. In non-fullscreen mode onboard comes up no problem, but when I enter fullscreen onboard disappears, and doesn't show until I leave fullscreen mode again.
