I got a problem with the full screen feauture on many app I use when I restart the computer. Some apps like Safari that I leave in full screen mode when I shut down, come back in full-screen mode also when I login again, but some others apps like Chrome does not.

I want those app to remain full-screen and not have to click the arrows every time I restart the Mac.

How can I fix this?

There's nothing you can do to fix this directly (unless you can develop a fix yourself). What you're seeing is a bug in those applications' full-screen support. Hopefully, it will be fixed eventually!

To speed the process for e.g. Chrome, report an issue to the Chrome product team using the Report an issue feature. The same goes for the other products with which you're seeing this behavior - find a way to contact their makers/developers to report the issue.

Yes but it's really weird, because I just reinstalled Lion, the same version, and before reinstalling I hadn't this problem neither with Chrome... before reinstalling, it all works.. So I thought there have to be some kinds of settings to change.. but I can't figure it out.. – Massimo Mar 11 '12 at 13:40
That is odd. It's possible that it's a new bug - since Chrome auto-updates in the background, this might be correlated with (but not caused by) your OS reinstall. Out of curiosity, why reinstall? Also, the bug DB is at – David Mar 11 '12 at 20:00
Well, I reinstalled a fresh copy because suddenly, some days ago, the OS begin to take a very long time to become ready from when I turn it on.. like more than 10 minutes! – Massimo Mar 11 '12 at 22:28
