View Full Version : [ubuntu] firefox view mode changes when opening link

February 12th, 2009, 10:23 PM
anytime i open a hyper link from an email Firefox will change to a semi-full screen view (Firefox menu bar is still visible but Ubuntu's task bar on bottom and application/system tray bar at the top will disappear).

does anyone know how i can fix this so that Firefox will stop doing this?

i am using the latest version of Firefox on Ubuntu 8.10.

stop using compiz, or use Nvidia's 180 driver
or prees F11 twice to return to normal mode when it happens

That happened to me for a while. Honestly, I don't know what fixed it, but soon after I started having trouble with some of my libraries recognizing SVGs corrupting. After I fixed those, Firefox stopped doing that. I'm not sure the two were related though...
