Open in fullscreen mode

Unread postby averied » Sun, 26 Nov 2017, 23:07

I've installed Pale Moon under Xubuntu 16.04

Is there any command line parameter to open Pale Moon in fullscreen mode?

for example: "palemoon -fullscreen"

There's a roundabout way of doing it. It relies on the fact that a profile will open with the same width+height as when it was last closed. So...
    Open the profile manager from a teminal with the command palemoon -no-remote -p
    Select the option to create a new profile. Call it "full".
    Start the new profile "full", hit {F11} to make it fullscreen, and then {ALT}{F4} to exit it
    You can how start it from a terminal; e.g. palemoon -no-remote -p full
The navigation URL bar will show up for a few seconds, then disappear once the page is loaded. If you temporarily want the menus, move the mouse pointer to the top edge of the screen. The menus will disappear when you move the mouse pointer away from the edge.
There's a right way
There's a wrong way
And then there's my way
