Minimode Offers A Customizable Firefox Fullscreen Mode


Most web browsers have a fullscreen mode for enhanced website viewing. Generally, the fullscreen mode not only hides the toolbars and window chrome of the browser, but also expands the browser window to the full screen geometry, hiding OS elements such as panels. This is handy for small computer monitors, laptops and netbooks with limited screen real estate. Hiding the toolbars ensures that more of the website is displayed on the screen, which can reduce the amount of scrolling that needs to be done to access all the contents of a specific page. The fullscreen mode is usually be activated by pressing F11 or one of the other Function keys.
Some users on the other hand may prefer a less strict fullscreen mode. Perhaps they want to hide the Tab Bar yet display the Address Bar for quick navigation, or perhaps they want to hide everything but the Title Bar. No matter what configuration is needed, the Minimode Firefox add-on lets the user customize the fullscreen mode to his liking. The extension registers the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-F11, which by default will hide all toolbars except for the Tab Bar and Title Bar. The Minimalistic Browser Settings screen can be used to configure which toolbars will be displayed in the alternative fullscreen mode.
