Setting fullScreenMode to empty is the same as not using FSM at all; it's the old behavior we 
had before FSM was available. I think "of" was an autocomplete error; should be "to empty."

I believe the resolution of the device also affects the stack size, so if the resolution of 
your phone is different than the resolution of your desktop then it will size the stack 
differently. But I'm not sure how the calculations work exactly.

Off topic: a few years ago, a guy here in the U.S. went to renew his driver's license wearing a 
colander on his head. He said it was apparel for his deeply-held FSM Pastafarian religious 
beliefs, and they let him keep it on for the photo. Since then a few others have done the same. 
Permission depends on the state.
