Bug Description

Every time I press "F11" in Firefox or use "F" in VLC to go into fullscreen mode my laptop will freeze, only leaving the audio playing with a frozen image, without the ability to use my keyboard or move my touch pad or mouse, forcing me to restart my computer by holding down my power button.

How to reproduce the bug in Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 on Wayland:
- Press "F11" by default in Firefox to go into fullscreen mode.
- Press "F" by default in VLC to go into and/or leave fullscreen mode.

It only seems to happen when using Wayland and the same thing happens when using your touchpad and mouse every now and then while being in fullscreen mode.

summary: - Hardware freeze when going fullscreen in certain applications
+ Hardware freeze when going fullscreen in certain applications with

GTK 3.22.4 includes a fix for a Wayland fullscreen issue. I uploaded 3.22.4 to zesty today. It will be published once it passes automated testing. Once that happens, could you check if your issue is fixed?

I'm still running into that problem with 3.22.4-1ubuntu1 on Wayland.

For me, it looks like this was fixed with recent updates, maybe mesa?
