View Full Version : [ubuntu] maximized window covers whole screen

November 16th, 2008, 11:10 AM
When I have firefox maximized, it takes up the entire screen, It doesn't even have buttons to close, minimize, or maximize the window. So far, none of the other programs I have exhibit such behavior. Any ideas?

Oh, running 8.10 on Inspiron 530.

Try pressing F11.
Also, if you're not getting the buttons to close, maximise etc your navigation tool bar has probably been switched off.

If you are running Compiz check that you have smart window management ticked. Also what theme are you running, are you running emerald?
