How do you get full screen mode on Firefox with a mac?

Hi I am a windows user. F11 gives me full screen with any program. I am using Firefox on a ibook Blueberry it's a laptop and the screen is small. Is there a button I can push to make it go Full Screen? Please tell me Mac users have this feature.

Well, as per Mozilla.org's Firefox Support Page on Keyboard Shortcuts, it's not implemented by them on their Mac OS X port.

If you want full screen mode on most Mac apps you need to add it using a utility like mega zoom. Check version tracker to see if megazoomer is ready to be installed on whatever version of OS X you're running.

But do you really need it to be full screen? The menu bar takes up such a tiny amount of usable screen real estate that it really doesn't matter.

edit: here's the link

Yep, but for a presentation (kiosk, wall monitor, etc), you don't want even that cluttering up your display. Megazoomer worked great, thanks!

edit: I had to switch to Safari from Firefox, though, since Firefox is not Cocoa.

If you're using the beta (Minefield), you can get it by pressing the green button.
