Full screen to windowed and back again, something I have need to do frequently. Was NOT happy that it no longer saves the size and position of the windowed mode (think that was a 5.0 thing), but I grudgingly got used to it.
Today seemed to dawn a new way to make it even MORE of a pain. NOW it seems each toggle also triggers a FULL UI reload (like /reload)... i.e. it take 30-60 seconds to complete.
So is this a (terrible) design decision, or simply a bug? Is it a Mac thing or does it happen to peecees? AND I guess I should ask if anyone else is seeing this?
Wow, I came to the forums to report this exact same thing!
I'm pretty sure it happened within the last week or two; maybe since the last hotfix?
I thought it may be my computer settings or maybe something in WoW's — I reset them all, and it still happens.
Everytime I switch from windowed to full screen, and vice versa, it forces a ui reload just like Brightbrown describes.
I'm on a late 2008 Macbook running 10.7.5.

This is a known issue and will be updated in the next patch. I believe this is already fixed in the PTR.
This was fixed, yes, but...
On 3/31/2013 I noticed the problem is back.
Extremely disappointed. I constantly toggle between full screen and windowed mode. Please don't tell me this is part of a clever April Fool's joke. I die a little each time my screen reloads.
