enterFullscreen() does not work with native fullscreen

Is it me, or does enterFullscreen() not work at all when native fullscreen is enabled? If I initialize the slider with nativeFS set to true, the call to enterFullscreen() doesn't do anything. Clicking on the fullscreen icon at the top right corner opens the fullscreen mode, though. If I set nativeFS to false, enterFullscreen() works fine.
Tested with latest Firefox and Chrome.

    The browser fullscreen API can be used only with user interaction (e.g. click, mousedown).

    Browsers do this to prevent malicious usage of such function.
