Now that we have the my side bar at the left all the time (The 3 or 4 pixeles when it is 'hidden'). It would be nice to have a screen enlarging feature that allows the menu bars to 'auto hide' and become tabs on or in line with the my side bar border. then a mouse over the tab would result in the menu scroling out and being available for use. This 'auto hide' could be extended to the my side bar and any other screen real estate user.
When it's hidden, it's hidden, i.e., not there. When I hide it (Windows, Linux), it goes away. What platform/version doesn't allow this?
He's talking about the toolbars being able to "collapse" to the left edge of the screen. So all you'd see would be tabs on the left edge. When you moused over the tabs the toolbar would expand out. Kind of like the "kicker" concept in KDE and Gnome, or Autohide with the Windows taskbar. This would require a very extensive rebuild of the xul structure (toolbars would have to become popupmenus, etc) with little or no gain in usability. We already have collapsing toolbars anyway, just not exactly like Chris wants.
Reporter: there's a bug for kiosk mode and another for full screen, please check those out. I actually think your feature is separate although probably useful for them.
