    Does firefox support the fullscreen mode? I have the latest version but doesn't look like it supports the full screen feature? How about chrome?

    I have Firefox 5.0.1 and yes it does support full screen mode. As for Chrome, I don't know because I don't have it.

    firefox doesn't support it natively like safari but you can go into full screen mode if you want, i think thats what the OP meant.

    Well ok, so it doesn't have the new 10.7 button (yet), but if you switch to full screen either by the menu or keyboard shortcut you can get it. - I just wasn't thinking of it the other way (new way) I suppose. :eek:

    Ironically, even though it doesn't officially support the full screen thing in Lion, Firefox is one of the very few apps that actually works the way I would expect it do when in full screen--by not killing my second display! Are you listening, Steve? :apple:

    Is there anyway to always show bookmark toolbars in full screen mode?

    I can do the navigation toolbar. Just not the bookmarks I have below the navigation in non-full screen mode.

    Cheers.!
