I experience a red bar appearing right on top of my screen everytime I toggle fullscreen on. In addition to that the mouse seems to be shifted by about 50 pixels(the height of the red bar appearing in the top). For example I can click on a button while placing the mouse 30 pixels above the button.

When I exit fullscreen it disappears.

My machine is a 2016 MB Pro retina 15. The machine is running OSX High Sierra version 10.13.3 and Blender version is 2.79 2017-09-11.

A red bar appears every time after fullscreen is toggled

I'm helpful for any insights.

    $\begingroup$ Isn't that just the last line of the Info window output? $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Mar 9 '18 at 17:02
  • $\begingroup$ yes that should be an error report you recently got. just resize the info header. (The Info header is also a window type) $\endgroup$ – Leon95 Mar 9 '18 at 17:26
  • $\begingroup$ It seems impossible to interact with the info header, because of the second part of the problem: The mouse-shift by 50 pixels(see question). Am I doing anything wrong? $\endgroup$ – Matthias Schedel Mar 11 '18 at 11:29

The solution was to resize the blender window to a smaller height. And toggle fullscreen after the window height has been decreased.
