    Hello,

    Yesterday I updated the Italian article. This step doesn't convince me:

    Click the Full Screen icon in the upper-right corner of the Firefox window.

    Just a question: Where is the Full Screen icon? I can't find it "in the upper-right corner of the Firefox window" on my Mac OS X 10.6 (profile Firefox 14.0 beta 7 - same situation in two profiles Nigthly & Aurora).

    The icon/item is inside the Customize Toolbar window. It's not clear to me if a user must drag and drop it onto the Navigation Toolbar (or onto the Tab Strip), or if the icon should be on the toolbar by default.

    Should we edit the step?

    Gah - that's because you are using 10.6. This works only in 10.7. I guess the old way works in 10.6? I don't have it to test.

    Yes, Michael, I think that's because I'm using OS X 10.6.

    So, the new feature introduced in Firefox 14 and the current step in the article, only applies to Mac OS X 10.7.

    I can confirm that the old way (menu bar > click on the View menu > click Full Screen) works in 10.6 and Firefox 14.

    Otherwise, I must customize the toolbars (drag & drop the item from the Customize Toolbar window on the toolbar/tab strip) if I wanna see a Full Screen button... But that's another story. ;-)

    Tested on clean profiles (no add-ons and no settings changed) of the last versions of Firefox 14 beta, Nigthly, and Aurora.
