How to Enable Native Fullscreen in Firefox {#Android}

I won't spend much time on today's post, because it's Memorial Day, and you should really be outside grilling.

So, without further ado, here's how to enable fullscreen mode in Firefox on your Android phone or tablet.

Until recently, I was using an addon to accomplish fullscreen functionality. Unbeknownst to me, I didn't need to; Firefox includes a fullscreen mode, but the setting is turned off by default.

To enable it, just type "about:config" into the address bar.

In the resultiing search box, type "dynamic," and three options will pop up. The first is the one we want. Click the "toggle" button to turn on Firefox's dynamic toolbar. Now, when you scroll down on a webpage, the toolbar will disappear. Scroll up a bit to bring it into view.

That's it. Now you have native fullscreen browsing on your Android device. Incidentally, Chrome also got this feature recently, but it doesn't work on tablets. In Chrome, however, fullscreen is enabled by default, and the behavior is the same as Firefox; that is, fullscreen is a dynamic toolbar.

Now, go grill something.
