    I know the way macs zoom is different (and subjective relative to windows) and everyone has their preferances. I actually the mac idea - windows only as large as needed. What's annoying is that non-Apple apps don't implement zoom/maximise as it should be in mac OS. The inconsistency of the green button depending on the application is really infuriating!

    Is there anyway to make OSX firefox zoom/maximise like it should on mac OS (zoom the window to the size of the contents)?

    Most likely not since it isn't a native app. If it were written in Cocoa then it would work, but since it's not, you'll have to wait until 3.0 for it to work.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    It's a native application and it doesn't have to use Cocoa to be one. :D

    Zoom behaviour is dependent on the developer, not the framework.

    3.0 alpha is written in cocoa, and I didn't see it can do the maximize like you suggested.

    for OP, I always drag the window to re-size, after all, not every webpage's content has same width.
