The "Full Screen" option (Cmd-Shift-F) is a toggle, just press it  
again to restore the view. But I guess that's not very obvious!  
Probably Esc would be a good alternative, and easier to guess.

Now that you've navigated somewhere else, it should "remember" this

No dictionaries are included; I need to post some information about  
where to get them.

I just tried Cmd-Tab, and you're right, it looks very poor. I'll see  
if I can figure out what to do about that.
