Unable to use right click menu on running video

Up until today, I've been able to right click on any running video and then click on open video in new tab. The purpose of doing this has been it enlarges the video, eliminates everything else on the screen and makes it easier to see what the teacher is typing.

Now when I try to do this, no menu will pop up so I can right click to open just the video in a new tab.

I've tried alternative methods, such as using full view, but when I try this the video will shrink down and thus this method is of no use.

I'm using Chrome and don't know if this is caused by something on my end or if it's on Treehouse's end. Any ideas? thanks.

Hi Alan,

Interesting issue you've brought up. I have never been able to right click on a running video to manage its playback (Mac OS 10.11.3, Chrome). Additionally, when I launch Fullscreen via the video player's button, the video expands to fill the viewing device and definitely doesn't shrink. Would you mind linking to any images you may have of either instance?
