Firefox 3 and latest update. . .

by Coryphaeus / July 16, 2008 8:56 PM PDT

When running FF3 it always opened up in a full page window. Got a notice for FF 3.1, installed it, now FF3 won't open full size. I have to click the maximize button. Happens every time.

Re: opening full screen
by Kees Bakker / July 16, 2008 9:05 PM PDT

If you run FF3 from a shortcut (desktop, quick launch area, Start>Programs) - which is what I should call 'running FF3') it should be easy: rightclick on the shortcut, choose properties, and set it to run in a maximized window.

When clicking on a link (in, say, an email) it doesn't open maximized, but in a normal window. But you can 'learn' it what window size to use, and that can be "nearly" full screen). To do that, drag and change the window to the desired size and position and close it via the cross in the upper right corner.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, but. . .

I know how to fix it, and I did. But the update broke it. All normal now, but the update caused me to reset/fix it.

Oh well, just complaining. As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm FF3 all the way. It just pissed me off that the update caused me to have to fix it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
