I don’t entirely get your question, so let me answer this:

Can I put stuff in fullscreen from a timeout callback?

The answer to that is: No. You will (at least) get this error:

Request for fullscreen was denied because Element.requestFullscreen() was not called from inside a short running user-generated event handler.

You could look at using browser.windows.update() and setting the state to maximized?

I haven’t tried it myself. I think users might find it annoying if they didn’t trigger it explicitly.
