I am having a hard time making Chrome go full screen on my second display without making the primary display unusable (OSX 10.8).

My work iMac was recently updated to OSX 10.8 (from 10.6, I think). Previously, I could make a Chrome window go fullscreen on my second display only. This was great for displaying a presentation on my classroom projector while still retaining full control of iTunes, or for using the "presenter notes" feature in Chrome, which displays the notes in a second window.
With the update, now Chrome goes "full screen" and makes my other monitor unusable - it goes to the grey background / backdrop thing. Brief Googling around tells me this is a known issue.
Is there any workaround? Right now it completely sucks to be unable to use presenter notes or control things on the main display while I'm showing a presentation. Unfortunately, installing Mavericks is NOT an option, as our district's IT department won't support it yet.
