Firefox bug

Postby edtrvl on Wed Jan 14, 2009 6:15 pm

I'm having an issue, a bug with Firefox (no add-ons), when I open it, it opens in full page, no panel (bottom bar)
Which is v frustrating and it does not allow me to view more than 1 page at a time (No tiling...).

Instead I'm using midori but I'd like to resolve this issue...
Is this a Linuxmint, Gnome or Firefox issue? Thanks in advance

Ed.

F11 changes between kiosk mode and normal mode - does that work?
view more than 1 page at a time (No tiling...).

I don't understand that - I never view more that one page at a time, but can have multiple tabs.....

I also don't understand what you mean by 'tiling'. :?

Yeah, F11 works but it's a work around, why is this issue happening?

By tiling, I mean viewing 2 or more window on the screen vertically or horizontally.
For example, when browsing the web, I like to have pidgin opened...
In Windows, you just right click on the task-bar and choose tile windows horizontally or vertically.
Hope it clarifies the issue, thanks

I am having the same issue. I think it started with the last Firefox update. F11 works, but still annoying. Basically, Firefox always comes up in full screen mode - no task bar and no title bar at the top. I have to hit F11 *twice* to make it go back to normal. :(

I think that for Firefox problems you should consult the Firefox forums
http://forums.mozillazine.org/index.php?c=4
As for the tiling I think you have a solution here

Thanks Husse,
For Firefox opening in full page:
I raised the issue with Mozilla also and got the press F11 twice a workaround and this one which seems to have done the trick:
In Firefox, go to
Edit - Preferences - Content - Enable JavaScript Advanced ...
Untick the top option which is "Move or resize window". This should prevent javascript from being able to resize your window inconviently

For the tiling of windows, I installed tile but I'm not sure what to do then, I didn't get a chance to look at it.
