    Im not sure what you mean with arranging your windows, Perhaps clicking the green circle + in the top left corner?

    However I do know how to move your favorites. If you were using firefox on your old comp, go to

    Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks > File > Export Bookmarks

    Save that file, email it to yourself or burn it to a disc, get it on your mac.

    Then in Safari go to

    File > Import Bookmarks and select the file.

    Bam!

    Its the same thing for firefox on the mac for importing as well i believe.

    Thanks :D
    what i meant is hotkey to maximize , my bad for speaking the same thing twice.:p
    the reader always use [fit height] and the + sign only enlarge it a bit , i always maximize windows maually which I am quite surprised that a pop os doesnt have such feature(maximizing) or do have a bad default setting(fit height instead of fit width or full screen)

    It's because there's no reason for the window to be larger than its contents.

    I found it strange at first as well, but you'll come to love it.

    I don't think There is a simple way to maximize in mac other than dragging the window larger. The plus simply zooms so that the content fits in the window. Just try it you might like it I do.

    For browsers copy and drag the following java script to your bookmarks bar in the browser. Name it whatever you want. I named mine Full Screen. Click it and your browser window will be full screen.

    javascript:self.moveTo(0,0);self.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight)

    This works in Safari, FireFox, Camino, Opera, and OmniWeb.
