Yes this brute force approach could work too. You could use uinput 
kernel driver (used with serial bluetooth keyboards) to feed proper 
F-key to the kernel input subsystem to emulate such key press. Could be 
quite easy but you need kernel module not present by default on the device.

Maybe there is better way - using window manager to make the application 
full screen via something else than just keypress. Or write something 
that does this directly - set X window properties of browser window to 
be fullscreen.
