How to enable full screen mode in Firefox

This is only intended for users running the Mozilla Firefox web browser on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows operating systems.

Although Firefox’s user interface doesn’t take up a significant amount of space, there are still times when the browsing experience is better free of distraction with just web content visible.

In these cases, full screen mode can be very useful. Its activation is a very simple process.

This tutorial will guide you step by step on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.

  1. Open your Firefox browser.
  2. To activate Full Screen mode, click on the Firefox menu, located in the upper right corner of your browser window and represented by three horizontal lines.
  3. When the pop-up menu appears, click Full-Screen , circled in the example above. You can also use the following keyboard shortcuts instead of this menu item: Windows: F11; Linux: F11; Mac: COMMAND + SHIFT + F .

To exit full screen mode at any time, simply use one of these keyboard shortcuts a second time.
