How can I DISABLE frames and force the display to render on ONE page - NO frames

Posted

FireFox 3, Win XP SP3 A bookmarks frames won't close to display one page. There is no option I can find to force FireFox to discard frame information and display sites in ONE window.

I'm not sure what you mean with this.

If you've bookmarked a page that consists of several frames then it may not be possible to bookmark only one frame.

  • Right-click : This Frame > Bookmark This Frame

You can check that you aren't opening a bookmark in the sidebar.

Opening in the sidebar is the default for bookmarks that are created via a link or button on a website.
You can check the Properties of a bookmark via the right-click context menu in the sidebar (Ctrl+B; Cmd+B on Mac).
In the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) you can click the More button in the Details pane at the bottom right.
Make sure that "Load this bookmark in the sidebar" is not selected.

Thank you. The problem was as you surmised. Bookmarked URL's were loading in the side bar and not in the main window. I hate frames but they are with us unfortunately.
