I mistakenly told Firefox to go Full Screen and now I can't get it to undo and I can't access anything else.

I downloaded the latest Firefox. In trying to learn some of the new features, I hit the Full Screen option. It went to full screen and now I do not have access to the functions I need. I can't do anything! I need to find out how to undo my mistake or I will not be able to use firefox at all. I can't even get to the portion where I can go to my gmail.

Have you tried pressing the F11 key on your keyboard? It toggles Fullscreen mode.

Thank you!!! I didn't know about that. I'm obviously not too computer literate.

Another way to leave full screen is to hover the mouse to the top to make the Navigation Toolbar appear and click the Maximize button in the corner at the right side of the bar.

I tried the F11 as suggested and it worked fine. I did try to work with the top of the screen but I was using minimize, thinking I could shrink the problem. That did not work. I didn't think to try maximizing. You learn things. Thanks again.

You're welcome.

You want to leave Maximized mode.
