OSX: Dock should not disappear when running full screen on secondary display -> Fixed in SVN

Description (last modified by aeichner)

When my MacBook Pro is connected to an external monitor, I run VirtualBox full screen on the external monitor, but keep my OSX menubar and dock on the laptop display.

When I switch focus to VirtualBox, the dock disappears. This should only happen if VB is running on the same display as the dock.

I have the same issue with my MacBook Pro, Mac OS X 10.7.3, Virtualbox 4.1.12
While entering fullscreen VM opened on external display, menubar and dock on main screen disapear.
I've tried both check and uncheck "Show dock and menubar in fullscreen" option, but nothing have changed.

This is still a bug in 4.2.12. Can this be addressed?

comment:7 by sethgecko, 11 years ago

Still present in 4.2.14.

I also have this issue with VirtualBox 4.2.18, OSX 10.8.5, and a Thunderbolt display.
