Firefox 12 Bringing Full Screen To Mac OS X Lion?

Firefox Logo

Mozilla Firefox is the favorite browser for many today. It is compatible with all modern computers.

It has a large add-on library, and has powerful rendering engines. Windows, Mac, and Linux users can all use Firefox easily and conveniently. They are happy with their browsing results. Competition from Google Chrome and Internet Explorer does not bother Firefox.

However, Mac OS X Lion users are disappointed with Firefox and they want to see support for full-screen applications built into it. Seems looks like Firefox 12 will finally bring that request to life without requiring any buggy hacks such as Grant Paul (chpwn)’s Maximizer option. This option adds full-screen support to many Cocoa applications.

This is how the Firefox 12 window will appear for Mac OS X Lion users, finally displaying that double-arrow button:

Firefox Bar

Firefox maybe popular because of the broad range of options that it has over some other browsers. However, some Mac users have reverted to using Apple’s Safari browser or Google’s Chome browser because they both support not only full-screen browsing on Mac OS X Lion, but they also support swipe navigation if you are using one of the Apple multi-touch trackpads or Magic Mouse pointing devices. The recent Firefox 9 update brought those multi-touch navigation features to Firefox as well.
