Fullscreen disabled when launched with --app arg

Reported by, Nov 15 2012

Issue description

Chrome Version       : 24.0.1312.14
OS Version: OS X 10.7.5
URLs (if applicable) :

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. launch chrome from terminal:

exec /Applications/Google\\ Chrome --app=""

2. Press Cmd+Shift+F

What is the expected result?

The browser should go into fullscreen mode

What happens instead of that?

The keyboard shortcut is ignored and fullscreen menu items are disabled. This means that an SSB built using Chrome cannot be run as fullscreen app anymore, something which worked until this beta has been pushed out...

I believe the culprit has to do w/ r167006 ->

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if

FWIW The entire Google Chrome Web Lab exhibition is making use of such SSBs and the only current workaround seems to be to stick with v23 and disable auto-updates...

Can't confirm on SnowLeopard. Maybe a 10.7+ issue ?

c#1: this seems related to 10.7's fullscreen mode, yes.

Hi  dharani and mbollu. Did you see lforge's email about Release Blockers? Is this bug consistent with that?

Comment 8 by, Nov 17 2012

Since this regression happened due to the recent merge, we don't want it to get it through stable. Also this is a new feature that getting promoted to M24 and it makes sense to keep this blocker label.

Comment 9 by, Nov 17 2012

I don't think I understand.

If a user can't fullscreen a window they opened by using a command line switch, you would block the release?

Removed the release blocker label. Since it regressed in 1312.14, it should either be reverted or fixed by next beta build.

This is a Regression in M24.
Please find the Bisect Info below:
Chrome Builds:
Last Good Build: 24.0.1312.8 (Official Build 166843) beta.
First Bad Build : 24.0.1312.9 (Official Build 167035) beta.
Bisect Info is not possible between the above two mentioned Versions using Bisect Tool as Chromium has to be launched using Terminal.

Bisect Information has been provided by installing the Chromium builds manually and launching them through Terminal.
Change Log URL: (Provided Manually).

I am suspecting the version "167006" is the culprit as I am seeing the issue in above change log URL.

Please let me know if any more information is required.
