Sure you can hit the F11 key to get Firefox to go to full screen mode. For some folks, it might be easier to just hit a toolbar button. With the Full Screen Firefox extension, you get a ‘Full Screen’ toolbar button and context menu command. No keyboard keys to memorize, just one button right in your face letting you know how to do it and what to hit.

None of my Firefox extensions really have a “witty but overweening manner” except for one. Uppity helps folks out by making navigation of a Web site just a little easier.

This theme doesn’t slap you in the face with the common Apple look. Instead it really does something different, as far as Apple inspired themes go.
Sure you love using Firefox as your browser, but your not a true fan unless you have some wallpaper love for your Internet companion. I recently ran across a plethora of free Firefox wallpaper, and much of it I really like. The only problem I could see is that most (if not all) are set at the 1024 x 768 resolution.
