Great !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi sepandparhami,


I have just made a quick test of 'Fullscreen Toolbar Hover' 3.0.3 ... and it works like a charm. Specifically the 'Zombie Mode' functionality replication is simply P E R F E C T . THANK YOU !!!!


On the other hand, regarding to the approach of this new feature ... I'd like to mention the following ...

... I usually surf the net in 'Zombie Mode' ... but several times a day I just need a quick go to 'Maximized Mode' for a while ... and then come back to 'Zombie Mode'.

With today's approach, going from 'Zombie Mode' to 'Maximized Mode' I need to open about:addons tab, enter 'Fullscreen Toolbar Hover' preferences, update them (ticking Normal (don't hover)) . I also need to move up the mouse pointer and righ-click on the toolbar to tick 'Show menu bar'. Well ... yes a bit cumbersome. Then the other way around for coming back to 'Zombie Mode'.

Either way ... in my opinion, the main reason for updating this new feature's approach is that I think most people who will use 'Zombie Mode' they will be doing so in substitution of 'Fullscreen Mode' ... ... once they are in 'Zombie Mode' ... they will not need to F11 for going to fullscreen ... they will probably need to click F11 to go to 'Maximized Mode'.

Yes ... I think 'Zombie Mode' and 'Fullscreen Mode' should be mutually exclusive. I also think that 'Zombie Mode' attributes should be replicated from 'Fullscreen Mode' , I mean, if on 'Fullscreen Mode' only one 'bar' or two 'bars' are autohiding ... 'Zombie Mode' should behave the same way ... and the fields 'Show toolbar when there is a title change event (notification)' and 'Show Tabs' from 'Fullscreen Toolbar Hover' addon should apply to both 'Fullscreen Mode' and 'Zombie Mode'.


I'd love to know your point about this.



Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

I'll look into adding an option to enter maximized / autohide mode when instead of entering fullscreen for the next release. There are a couple of things implementation wise that I am not sure about yet, so it will take a little bit of looking into.

One quick suggestion for now is that you can switch between the maximized autohide mode via the context menu on the tab bar. Just right click and select "Maximized / hover" to either enter or leave the mode. You will still need to hide the menu bar if you don't want it to show up when hovering however.
