    I am using an HDMI TV set to play a slideshow from my Macbook Air via a cable to Mini Display Port.

    Trying out different browsers, and I noticed this nifty "presentation mode" in Chrome browser. You can basically play the browser window content without any frame or tabs or even tools on the top of the browser (file/edit/view/history/etc).

    It shows only the content of the browser window and nothing else.

    Its seems to be so simple and I am looking for same mode in Safari, but cannot locate it.
    Does it even exist in Safari or Firefox?

    Thanks.

    The other problem with Chrome is, that it looks great on the TV as long as my macbook air is open.

    Once I close the clamshell, it still sends the slideshow to the TV, but now with a 1 inch white border around it. Being that this will be a presentation in a tradeshow running 10 hrs per day, I would like to keep the lid closed to protect the screen

    Why do you need the lid closed sorry? Just wondering...

    Try shutting the lid before you enter presentation mode if you can (using like a usb mouse or something). This might stop this.

    I'm wondering why you're using a browser to view the slideshow. There are other ways to view slideshows, depending on the format. Is it a file on your computer, or are you accessing a web site (better to have it on the computer, so you don't need an internet connection at that show)?

    So, what is the file format, and do you have the file on your computer?
