Full screen console mode

Open a console as normal

append /frame/ to the URL

Oooh... Nice spot...

Yup, good catch :-) We can't guarantee that it'll work forever (we may wind up refactoring the HTML in the future) but if we ever change things so that it doesn't, it'll be at the same time as we add an "official" full-screen option.

When I try this my window has a link preview stuck on all the time. In FF if you hover over a link it will tool tip the url at the bottom of the window just above the "Add-on bar." My problem is that it shows up when I use this trick and it won't go away. The url it shows is:

That's weird. I couldn't get FF to do that. Is that on Windows? If you go back to the normal console page and then to the frame one, does it go away?

Results of test:

  1. Open Bash 2.7 Console
  2. Added /frame/ to console URL
  3. Unable to duplicate previous results (believe me I tried!!)

I'll be sure to let you know if it happens again, but I'm not likely to notice, because I generally use ssh. I only tried it the first time because I read I could above and wanted to see it for myself.
