Mini Toolbar inaccessible

Reported by: CMenser Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 4.1.16
Keywords: mini-toolbar not useable Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Solaris


I am running 4.1.16 on OpenIndiana 151a4.

When running VMs in full-screen mode, the toolbar will not pop-out.

I have tried setting the toolbar to top and bottom and neither works.

Tested with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 guests.

The problem seems to be related to guest screen geometry; at one point I shutdown my windows vm in windowed mode and then relaunched it, switching to full-screen when the windows logo appeared. At that point, while the VM still showed a screen that was vertically smaller than the actual screen allocated, I was able to mouse to the bottom of the VMs drawn screen and get the toolbar to pop-out.

However, once the guest additions loaded and expanded the guest's screen to the full footprint, I was no longer able to get the toolbar to pop-out.

Interestingly, the mini-toolbar remnant (the one or two pixel tell-tale that persists) is visible, especially in Ubuntu 12.04 where the bottom of the guest's screen is dark and otherwise empty.

By pinning the toolbar up while the guest video geometry was less than full screen, I was able to verify the toolbar stays functional after the guest re-sizes to full-screen.

The problem is simply that the toolbar cannot be triggered to appear once the guest is running full-screen.
