After they get fullscreen, they float, I guess. If you now toggle
floating (Mod-Shift-Space here) they should get managed, shouldn't they?
My binding:

        { MODKEY|ShiftMask, XK_space, togglefloating, {0} },

In the Rule array in config.h, e.g. (untested):

        static Rule rules[] = {
                /* class instance title tags mask isfloating monitor */
                {"fullscrean", NULL, NULL, NULL, False, -1},

You need to figure out what class, title, etc. your windows have.
