Recovering Firefox Screen Space

If you ever watch video and movies using Firefox, you'll noticed that a lot of the screen space is taken up by toolbars. There is nothing more distracting while watching movie to see the URL on top of the screen. It gets even worse if you installed Google Toolbar and Yahoo Toolsbar. I've learned that you can reclaim all that screen space by removing those toolbars.

Click "View" and uncheck "Status bar" to turn off the Status Bar on the bottom of Firefox. Under "View" -> "Toolbars", you can turn off all other Toolbars.

Don't be scared to turn off the "Navigation Toolbar"; you can still navigate the web by right clicking on empty spaces of a web page.

Under "Edit" -> "Preferences" -> "Tabs", I would uncheck "Always show the tab bar" so that you can have a really clean interface. The tab bar goes away when you only have one tab open. You can select always open a new window at this time so that you never have multiple tabs open.

Press F11 to toggle Firefox between Full Screen and windowed view. In Full Screen, your movie could take up the entire screen real estate if you turn all these things off.
