Using a web browser such as Mozilla Firefox in full screen mode is quite commonplace these days. Usually this is achieved by pressing the F11 key on the keyboard and once in the full screen mode, the address bar and the status bar auto hide giving more screen space. One has to hover the mouse on the top and bottom area of the screen to see the hidden address and status bars respectively.

Some users don’t like the idea that the auto-hiding of toolbar takes place while in full screen mode so this guide will tell you how to disable the auto-hide of toolbars in full screen mode:

Method 1:

Step 1: Launch Firefox and in the address bar (where you enter website URLs) write about:config and press Enter.

hide-toolbar-1

Step 2:

Click on the I’ll be careful, I promise! button to proceed.

hide-toolbar-2

Step 3:

Type animate in the Filter box and look for following integer key:

browser.fullscreen.autohide

hide-toolbar-3

Click on Image to Enlarge

Step 4: The entry would be set to value True by default. Double click the entry to set it to False.

Method 2:

Step 1: Launch the Firefox browser and press F11 to enter into full screen mode.

Step 2: Move the cursor on top of screen to bring back the toolbars.

Step 3: Right-click on the navigation toolbar and uncheck Hide Toolbars option.

I hope this tutorial will be handy for Firefox users who are trying to hide toolbar.

Flickr has always been the go-to site for photographers. While most other photo sharing sites such as Facebook, Picasaweb etc are more about regular users sharing their photos with their friends and families, Flickr has always concentrated on the amateur or professional photographers.

The site offers excellent forums where one can learn a lot about the art of photography from professional who’ve been in this field for many years.

The only problem with Flickr is that it hasn’t really kept up with the times in terms of providing a nice way to browse the millions of excellent photographs that are uploaded to the website everyday. Flickriver solves that problem.

Flickriver uses the flickr API to display photographs in a “River of news” format. What that means is that the photographs are displayed in an endless scroll. As you keep scrolling through the page, more photographs are displayed at the bottom of the page and you never have to refresh the page for loading more pictures.

The default view is of the “Interesting Today” collection from flickr that is a curated set of interesting pictures of the day. If you’re just looking to browse through some nice photographs, this is what you want.

But, that is not the only view that you get, You can also search for specific pictures by users, tags other criterion and spend endless hours just browsing through the excellent photos.

Flickriver is an excellent way to see pictures and it really improves and puts the fun back in the otherwise boring view that flickr itself provides.

In yesterday Apple Back to Mac event, Apple team announced about Facetime for Mac and also unveiled two new Macbook air with screen size 11.6 inches and 13.3 inches starting with $999.

macbook-air

Both MacBook air comes with front facing camera for Facetime Video chat. As added by Steve jobs

MacBook Air is the first of a new generation of notebooks that leaves behind mechanical rotating storage in favor of solid state flash storage. We’ve taken what we have learned with the iPad—solid state storage, instant-on, amazing battery standby time, miniaturization and lightweight construction, to create the new MacBook Air. With its amazing responsiveness and mobility, it will change the way we think about notebooks

Key feature of this new Mac Book air is battery life. With 7 hours battery backup and 30 days stand by time, (5 hrs for 11 inch and 7 hrs for 13.3 Inch) it’s a good portable device for frequent traveler. I’m not sure if it’s going to hamper iPad market because it’s a combination of MacBook+iPad. But if I have to select any of them, I might go for MacBook air instead of an iPad.

MacBook air comes with no optical and hard drive and like iPad or an iPhone you can switch it on instantly & comes with flash memory.

You can learn more about new MacBook Air on official page.

If budget is not a constraint, which device would you go for? MacBook Air or iPad?
