Two of us using a FF mask are having this problem.. I'm using a Ultra Mirage by Resmed.. Humidity at 3 with a wrapped tube, pressure 10 cm...
Two possibilities............one, your straps are too tight. The Ultra Mirage works on the principal that it should 'float' on your face. Straps relatively loose as distinct from tight to allow the cushion inflate from inside using the cpap air. It is the inflated cushion that creates the seal.
Two..... your mask was not fitted properly, this being the case you should contact your DME and tell them.
Your symptoms sound like tight straps.
