Displaying a dialog will cause pages to lose fullscreen
Dialogs (e.g. authentication prompts, payments, filepickers) require proper context for users to make decisions. Fullscreen, by definition is immersive, and removes the context that a user needs to make a decision. Therefore, whenever a page causes a dialog to be shown, that page will lose any HTML5 fullscreen that it has entered.
