Default Firefox full screen in Mini 10v? - 09-16-2009, 12:56 AM

I first want to say what a great community this is. I was able to install OS X in my 10v and also solve some problems post install, all within this website. Great bunch of people helping in this community! Thank you!

On to my question, I am using firefox as my default internet browser in os x, but I feel that a big portion of the screen is taken away by os x tool bar, the firefox address bar, toolbar bookmarks, and the firefox tabs. My question is regarding going full screen or if there is a way to use firefox but with more real estate for my screen, without loosing at least the address bar. What is everyone using to get more browser screen?

Thanks again!

There is no "full screen" in FireFox for OSX... but, to make up for this you can make some changes to capitalize on realestate.

1. Use small icons
2. Do not show bookmarks toolbar
3. Click the "jelly bean" in the upper right corner... this will hide the address bar and provide more viewing area

Great, I will use the Jelly bean feature and remove the bookmarks toolbar. I was specially dealing with google reader, but I just created a google reader with Fluid App and it works good too. Just too bad I am not able to write a scrip to block the ads or use adblocks with Fluid.

Thanks again!

Nice reference for Windows... but this thread is specifically about OSX.

The methods I suggested will result in the most screen real-estate possible. Some of those methods provided in the LifeHacker article only pertain to Windows!
