Here I am, again with a nice Firefox tweak.

Before you start to try this tut out…

you must know how to

  • Install Firefox extensions
  • play with userChrome.css

If You dunno how to do these stuff first try my earlier Firefox tut > HERE <

you must have these stuff

/* Remove Home button */
#home-button { display: none; }

/*Remove magnifying glass button from search box*/
.search-go-button-stack { display: none !important; }

/* Eliminate the throbber and its annoying movement: */
#throbber-box { display: none !important; }

/* Remove Go button of searchbar */
#go-button-stack, .search-go-button-stack { display: none !important; }

  • A working brain inside your head. (I don’t have any links to download this :lol: )

OK, Now you are ready to ‘Firefox: Almost full screen’.

1. First Copy the lines I’ve given in to your userChrome.css file, Install the extensions I’ve mentioned & restart Firefox to see what you have you done. If you don’t see any change just try another restart. (If that also doesn’t help, just
forget this tut ;) )

2. Right-Click on ‘Menus Toolbar’ or ‘Navigation’ Toolbar & choose customize.Now you can drag & drop items in those toolbars. Now you can drag in-out icons between toolbars & ‘customize toolbars’ window & arrange icons as you wish. Find Personal menu Icon inside ‘customize toolbars’ window & drag & drop it on Navigation toolbar.Now Restart ‘fox again.

3. Now tweak “Personal Menu” extension.

You can add Only the menu’s you like;in to your personal menu. If you are not sure what you really need, just add all default stuff in to your personal menu.
[Tools > Addons > Extensions > Personal Menu > Options > Edit menu/Others.]Now you can find all Menus in handy personal menu button.

4. Right-Click on Menus toolbar & uncheck Menus toolbar option.

[!!! Check & recheck for Personal Menu button on Navigation toolbar & make -sure that all Menus you need are inside it, before you do this.]

5. Here’s the last step. Press F11 on Function keys & see what happens. If you do ‘Firefox: Almost full screen’ You are done.


Here’s My Firefox Window After this!

There’s a little risk doing this, if you are a complete new user for Firefox or new to these little Hacking tricks. So It’s better to use a different Firefox Profile to try Hacks on. Here’s How to deal with Firefox Profiles.
[Creating a shortcut to Profile manager worked well for me]

This tut is for windoze users. Mac & Linux users have the Idea now; so you can find how to do this on your platform, I dunno how to do this on other plats.
[ I still can’t configure my modem in Linux & have no enough time to play with. So still no surfing with Linux ] Forgive me for the ignorance, my Linux/Mac friends :) You can link your Mac/Linux tut here.just comment or mail me on chanux at gmail dot com
