Phoenix / theater view


Recommended Posts

The Phoenix/Firebird browser seems to be shaping up well, bloat wise, and speed wise. What I’d really like to see is a full screen (theater) view that’s like Opera’s— all screen space available to the page being viewed….. no other controls in the way. A way to turn off all buttons and scroll bars…. I came to appreciate theater view in IE and Opera…. But all things being imperfect, both have problems of their own. But if Mozilla would put a truly full screen option into Firebird, I’d be ready to dump the other two. :)

Try pressing F11 - this toggles between full screen and normal view. In full screen mode all toolbars etc disappear though scrollbars remain to allow navigation within the page

Pressing F11, or VIEW -> FULL SCREEN is how to do it.One thing I noticed, both in Mozilla 1.3 and Phoenix 0.6, is that there still is one line (navigation bar) shown. You could go VIEW -> SHOW/HIDE -> NAVIGATION TOOLBAR, but i dont know if theres a way to automatically hide it in full screen mode.

You're looking for the AutoHide-EXP extension on this page:http://www.krickelkrackel.de/autohide.htm(direct install download)This one lets you choose what "chrome" to see in full-screen mode.

Just a bit of advice for anyone running Phoenix/Firebird/Mozilla Firebird.. if you go to the Firebird home/help page at http://texturizer.net/firebird/ you can download all sorts of extensions for the browser (there's an extension link on the left). You can also download a bunch of themes (Theme link on the left), to help customize your browser. It's a big help if you're looking for Firebird to do something special :D There's extensions for just about everything...P.S. After you install an extension (it should install automatically), you just restart Firebird and then the extension should be enabled. If you go to the Tools Menu -> Options -> Extensions tab, you'll find where all the extension options are :D
