Favorites/Bookmarks problem

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by slatconsulting, Mar 15, 2005.

  1. I tried Firefox for a week before switching back to IE. I use Windows 98,
    and it allows me to quickly access my favorites in IE full-screen mode by
    placing the mouse cursor all the way to the left side of the screen. When
    the page finishes loading, the bookmarks tab shrinks and disappears off the
    screen. By contrast, Firefox won't let me do this. Someone told me I had to
    type "ctrl B" to achieve the same effect in Firefox. I did that, and the
    bookmarks DID appear in the same manner (left side of the screen), but they
    just stayed there after the new page loaded. I therefore had to hit the "X"
    to get them off the screen. Do I have to use "ctrl B" in Firefox EVERY time
    I want to access my bookmarks in full-screen mode? If so, that's a colossal
    pain in the ass. Perhaps I'm missing something.

    AFAIK, the Bookmarks Sidebar of Firefox does not have the autohide
    feature like IE. In IE's full screen mode the favorites explorer bar
    only autohides if it is unpinned (i.e. with the push pin removed).
