Intel Mac :: My Safari Window Is Disappearing In Non Full Screen Mode OSX Lion

Apr 27, 2012

I seem to have the following problem. not sure exactly how it started as my wife was using the mac at the time (she says she just dragged the safari to different desktop via mission control) but now the situation is as follows:

When I hit safari icon it switches on (I can see the little light dot underneath the icon and after right click I can see names of windows that are opened) however I can only see the Safari menu at the top but no window. If I scroll to the right or left to different desktops it's not there, the same goes if I double tap to see the Mission Control mode it's not there...

I so far figured out that once the Safari menu is visible on top of the screen I can go to View>Enter Full Screen and then Safari will come back into the full screen mode but once I unclick the full screen button in right top corner the whole window just swoops into the right top corner and it's nowhere to be found again.

OS X :: Full Screen/window Capture App For Safari (scrollable)?

Nov 4, 2009

I've been using a plugin for firefox (on my PC) called screengrab, but the plugin isn't available on FireFox for mac.

It's an awesome plugin - basically it allows you to take a screenshot of an entire window in firefox, no matter how long it is. So far it's the only plugin I've found that let's you do it within firefox. I know there's a utility for OSX that lets you input a URL and it gives you a full page screenshot, but the problem is a lot of the time I need a screenshot from a website I'm logged into (email, college transcript, forums, etc.) so the app is somewhat useless in that regard since it doesn't work if you need to login.

Safari :: Turn Off Opening In Full Screen Mode?

Jun 27, 2012

When I open safari by clicking on a link in my dock (on the little spring with an @ sign on it), my safari automatically opens in full screen mode.  Can I turn this off so that it opens in just normal "windowed" mode?

Bookmarks Bar And Toolbar Do Not Drop Down When Safari Is In Full-screen Mode

Apr 16, 2012

I just updated to Safari 5.1.5 this morning as well as OS 10.7.3 and when in full-screen mode, the bookmarks bar as well as the toolbar will not drop down. Once I escape then I can see them fine. I'm also having issues with dragging or dropping ANYTHING. A gost image of what I am trying to move shows, and will not go away unless I force quit Mail or Safari. Needless to say, what I ws attempting to drag and drop does not take effect.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Full Screen Mode And Two Monitors

Mar 24, 2012

I consider this an oddity in Lion. I have two monitors. If I have Mail open in the left one and let's say Address book on the right one, and I put Mail into full screen mode, the other monitor goes gray. So no way to have one monitor in full screen mode and still use the second monitor!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Take Mail Out Of Full Screen Mode

May 5, 2012

I installed Lion yesterday.  I cannot take Mail window out of full screen mode.  There is no double arrow in the upper right corner.  I hate it being this large.  In fact, I don't like this Mail program at all. Moving the cursor up does not do anything.  No Menu Bar appears.  The only way I can get out of Mail is command Q.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Stop Pages Opening In Full Screen Mode

May 23, 2012

How to stop pages opening in Full Screen Mode?This occurs on most software and is very annoying when you have a large monitor with one small picture taking up the whole screen.PLUS trying to reduce the size of the screen means the cursor has to find a tiny one pixel area in the corner in order to reduce the screen size. This takes up a lot of time when working on several images.(enlarging the cursor size is not an answer and makes it worse because it's hard to exactly align the cursor with the text or else it edits the wrong line of text).

MacBook Pro :: Unable To View Full Screen Mode / Second Screen Turns Black

Sep 16, 2009

So I have a DYNEX 21 inch HD TV conected up to my MBP via the VGA connection route. My problem is that when I want a program (or more specifically in this case a game) to go into fullscreen mode it automatically goes to my primary monitor and turns the other screen black. I know I can switch the primary monitor from my actual laptop screen to the TV however I just want the game to be full screen on the TV while still having access to my dock and everything on my laptop.

OS X :: How To Make A Window Full Screen

Jul 1, 2007

I recently switched from Windows, and while I love OSX overall, I miss the ability to make a window fill the screen. I don't want to do it all the time, but want to be able to do it when I'm focusing on a single program, or want to use as much screen real estate as possible.

Are there any plugins, programs, or Automator settings that would allow me to do this?

OS X :: Mac Mouse Does Not Go Off In Full Screen Mode

Dec 9, 2008

When I'm watching a full screen video on my computer the mouse doesn't go off the screen and because the border of it is white you can see it at the side of the screen. After a few seconds it does disappear though but if you watch a full screen flash video such as on BBC iPlayer or YouTube, the mouse remains there with that white line sticking out on the side of the screen. Also, if you put the cursor off the bottom of the screen, the dock pops up so unless you disable the dock temporarily and then put it in the bottom right corner (where it only takes up 1 pixel).

ITunes :: Can't Get It Out Of Full Screen Mode

Jul 2, 2012

I have two monitors on an iMac 8 running Lion. I went to full screen mode and the iTunes took over both monitors and covered up all menu options. I can't get out of full screen mode now. The ESC key does not work. All I can do is press F4, open another app, and then close iTunes. But I can't change the mode for the next time it opens. Is there some combination of keys I can type to get control back on my own GD desktop?

OS X :: Full Screen Window Wtih Overlapping Dock?

Jan 10, 2011

New Mac user with a couple of questions:

1. Is there any way to be able to maximize a window to fullscreen by dragging the bottom right corner, like say a browser window, but have the dock overlap it? Auto-hide on the dock is too slow. If I have the dock on auto-hide, stretch a browser to full screen, then unhide the dock.. the dock does what I want and overlaps the maximized window. However as soon as I open a new window, or minimize/maximize the browser window, or hit the zoom button, it resizes so that it does not overlap the dock. It's annoying to lose 3/4" of vertical space on the bottom just for the dock..

2. Is there a keyboard shortcut for to mute the audio? I know there's a dedicated fn button on the MBP but I have a logitech 8 button mouse and on my PC the logitech software gave me "mute" as an option for what a button could do. Unfortunately I'm unable to get the logitech software working on my Mac so I downloaded Steermouse which is great but doesn't give me volume control options for my mouse buttons unless there's some kind of keyboard shortcut that exists?

3. Is there really no keyboard shortcut for the undo command???? That seems kind of crazy. It's blank in every application I've check, yet there's a keyboard shortcut for redo.

4. Is there anyway to remap cmd-x/c/v to ctrl-x/c/v like on a pc? The command button is so close, this is definitely one function that is better on a PC.

5. Is there a way to change the default file manager from finder to something else? I downloaded Macintosh Explorer and really like it, but everytime I open a folder on my desktop it opens it in finder (which I strongly dislike).

Safari :: Resume Function Not Working When In Full-sceen Mode

May 1, 2012

If I have Safari open as a window on my desktop, it will generally 'resume' (as in, most of time remember what I had open) after shutting down and booting up again. However, if I have Safari open in full-screen mode (as I prefer to), it never remembers resumes upon shutting down and booting up again; Safari is open (the little light in dock shows up) as if to say OS remembered I had Safari open, but there is no window and upon opening a new window, none of my tabs are restored.
