Description

I have activated the "fluid mode" (Host+L) but now I can't disable it. Although I press Host+L or I select the option (in menú): "Machine" > "Fluid Mode", VirtualBox doesn't disable it.

I will be more specific about this problem: I activated the "fluid mode" (Host+L). I can disable pressing this same keys combination. But the problem is that although I have turned off, when I open the VirtualBox always tries to activate this mode again.

Hmm, to be sure: The expected behavior is that VirtualBox stores the last state, that is, if the Fluid/Seamless mode was enabled when the VM finishes, the VM will start with Fluid/Seamless enabled the next time. But if you start the VM, activate the Fluid/Seamless mode by Host+L, deactivate that mode by Host+L, shut down the VM and restart the VM, that mode should be disabled.

From you last comment it seems that the Fluid/Seamless mode is enabled when the VM starts even it is was disabled when the VM was shut down the last time. Is that correct?

Ok, I have detected the "problem" (I will try to explain it but my english is very bad! Sorry! ):
I started VirtualBox, it warned me it was going to activate the Fluid mode, I cancelled that window and VirtualBox started in no Fluid mode.
I pressed Host+L but this did nothing because I had cancelled the Fluid mode.
When I start VirtualBox again, it warned me it was going to activate the Fluid mode again and so on...
I think that VirtualBox should definitely disable this mode when I cancel the warning window, don't you think?
