[Leo] Full Screen Mode

How do I disable the full-screen mode entirely in Lion, or if not possible, get out of it back to my regular screen without having to completely close down my browser window every time I accidentally click the double diagonal arrows?

If you have an application running in full screen mode, if you take the mouse pointer and hover over the top of the screen the menu bar will appear, and you should see a similar icon in blue in the top right corner.

Clicking on that will bring the application out of full screen mode

Don't see that icon there. Matter of fact, when I hover and the menu appears, I can't click any of the options.

Esc doesn't work, but Cmd-Shift-F does.

As the blog post says, some, all, or none of the accelerator keystrokes will work, depending on the app. It's a feature

Just click that and you're out.
