First I do window -> view mode -> fullscreen and LR5 changes to fullscreen as LR4
I am in the Library module
Press F to view a picture in fullscreen
Press D to change to developer module with the active picture
Now LR5 switch to Developer and at the same time switch to "Screen mode normal"

I think this is a bug and at least to me it is quite annoying.
I use OSX Mavericks and have verified the bug in 5.3RC

Lightroom 5 has a more true fullscreen mode when pressing the F key.

Try using Shift + F to get to the fullscreen you're likely looking for (more similar to LR4's fullscreen)

Using shift+F have the same effect as the menu I described.

The problem is that LR5 exits the "old" fullscreen mode after I have been in the new "view a picture in full screen mode"

Try view mode fullscreen (shift+f twice if you were in normal)
Then view an image in fullscreen (choose an image in library and press F)
Then press D to edit the picture that you see in fullscreen.
Now LR5 switches to Develop module in "normal screen mode".
You need to do shif+f twice to get back to fullscreen Develop again

same here with LR5.2 only not going back with 'd' to develop but rather going back to grid with 'g'.

And yes, it's quite annoying...
