  • 12 Firefox guard start full screen mode.

    Since upgrading to Firefox 12, he wants to start full screen mode. I don't want to say extreme full screen mode where even the menu bar is hidden. I mean the most "typical" full screen mode where it just gets as large as possible, but has the same content. I tried to force a new profile (in renaming ~/.mozilla/firefox) and that fixed it. But then, as soon as I got the personal bar is released, it was again full-screen mode. I wish that there was something in the preferences for this. I NEVER want it to start full screen mode. It is Ubuntu 11.10.

For some reason, one of the things that often turns in there is a preference to restore your previous session at once. However, because Firefox uses user.js to override your normal parameters, whenever it starts, which then turns into a permanent change.

    More contact information system (next to your message) shows that you have a user.js file. To check what are the benefits and/or remove, try this technical support article: How to fix preferences that will not save.

    This can happen if you have an incorrect user agent string (identifies the version of Firefox). Some add-ons are changing the user agent string to show an old version of Firefox, even if you have the latest version installed.

    You need to reset the user agent string so that it will correctly identify the version of Firefox you have installed, for more details on how to make and who see https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Websites+or+add-ons+incorrectly+report+incompatible+browser

But now is not working and even after uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, it is inadmissible. I should have the version 6.0.2
