How do I resize the Firefox home page, so that it has very little white area and mostly background persona?

I like the personas, and I would like to see them as the total background, with just a small white box in the middle for Mozilla Firefox's home page. Right now I just see a small strip of the persona on top and a very narrow strip on the bottom, with a Mozilla Firefox logo in a huge white box - not useful and not nice to look at.

Is there a way to change the dimension of the big white box (like moving the dimension of a text box in Word)?

Thank you.

Add extra empty toolbars if you want to see more of the persona.
You can create new toolbars in View > Toolbars > Customize
You have to place something on a toolbar (drag a Space on it) before closing the Customize window as empty toolbars are automatically removed.
See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Toolbar_customization


You can also create one toolbar (name: PersonaFiller) via "View > Toolbars > Customize" and put a single Space item on it and use code in userChrome.css to set a min-height for that toolbar.
If you do not want to see that toolbar to get more website space then you only need to remove one check-mark via the right-click context menu on that toolbar.

Add code to userChrome.css below the @namespace line.
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

My home page background has a design on it. How can I change it back to its original plain background.

You can uninstall your current Persona and revert to the Default theme (Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
