option to disable a security prompt when it pops up

Hello, I'm sure there's probably a solution to this somewhere, but searching has failed me. Sorry if this has already been addressed, I did look as best I could.
I've loved tor browser's secure features, even if noscript is set to allow scripts globally initially (this is not what the ticket is about, I know how to adjust that).

My problem is this:
Whenever I maximize the window to fullscreen, I would get this "blah blah blah, fullscreen mode can allow blah blah blah" at the top. I use a fairly standard screen resolution, so it's near impossible for this to actually be a security issue with me.
Normally, I just click the little x, and that's that. Recently, I accidentally clicked the ok button, and it's started forcing me back out of fullscreen mode automatically.

How do I disable this from happening, and how do I disable that annoying freaking prompt?

Thanks for your time.

Are you using a non-default homepage on browser start-up? If so, does this issue go away if you reset the homepage to about:tor? And the prompt goes away after you are clicking three times on "OK" just clicking on "x" does not count. You might have clicked on it by accident.
