    I have just bought a MacBook and its the first time I have used OS X so I am trying to get some little nuances out of the way.

    Is it possible for Firefox to automatically go on top of the dock or hide it so that I can stretch the browser's window to the edge of the screen? I know that you can turn on auto hiding for the Dock but I don't want to have that on all the time. I've attached a screen shot to show what I mean.

    Thanks!

    No. The Dock is always on top unless you have auto-hiding on.

    As far as I am aware you can't do what your asking, only auto hide.

    BUT I COULD BE WRONG! :eek:

    I think I'm right though, no doubt I'll be corrected in due course if not.

    Try Option + Command + D

    That will hide or show the dock on demand :)

    Bah, Tallest Skil replied at the same time, taking the dramatic effect out of my reply. :D

    Given the direction his answer followed, I would lean towards the thinking that I'm right.

    The Opt+Cmd+D key combo (Turn Hiding On) is the same thing as "auto hide." Maybe this will work for the OP, though, since it is a bit faster than opening the Dock preferences.

    Touche, mediaguru... I never noticed that! ;)

    But it is quicker than System Prefs as you say.
