I consider this an oddity in Lion. I have two monitors. If I have Mail open in the left one and let's say Address book on the right one, and I put Mail into full screen mode, the other monitor goes gray. So . . . no way to have one monitor in full screen mode and still use the second monitor!

    This is Apple's warped sense of humor about how full screen should work.  Aparrently the designer only uses tablets so has no clue how the real world works.

     

    This is totally hated by most  power users but,  alas,  Apple aren't doing anything about fixing this patently broken design,  let alone admitting that they could have made a mistake.

     

    Your options are to either put up with it or back out to Snow Leopard.
