Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

To repro A:

  1. Visit
  2. Click on “Fullscren native stretch”
  3. Press the Esc key.
  4. Observe the background color of the page.

Observed: The background color of the page is black, like shown in this image:

Expected: The background color of the page should be white.


  1. Right-click on the black page background and choose "Inspect Element".
  2. Observe that the page redraws itself and the background color snaps to the correct white color.

The fact that opening up the Web inspector redraws the page in the correct color suggests that this is a visual bug and not caused by the JS code on the page.

To repro B: Download the file 'fullscreen_canvas.html’, open it in the text editor and find and remove the following lines:

        // IE11 hack: assigning 'undefined' or an empty string to has no effect, so first assign back the default color
        // before setting the undefined value. Setting undefined value is also important, or otherwise we would later treat that as something that the user
        // had explicitly set so subsequent fullscreen transitions would not set background color properly.
        if (!oldDocumentBackgroundColor) = 'white';

Then repeat the steps above, and note that the same issue appears.

Expected Results:

Setting should update the document background color.

Actual Results:
