Just a comment that also the YouTube full screen issues seems to have re-surfaced on 1.7 stable. Yes I know, 1.8 is due soon and everyone should roll on beta etc.

This issue is back or not-resolved in 1.8.1. Going full screen does not work - user is bounced back to the thread, but to a different position.

Android 7.0 w. latest Chrome.
