HOW DO I GET OUT OF FULL SCREEN MODE AND BACK TO THE HOME PAGE?

I was at a website and expanded the view to full screen mode. i pressed ESCAPE but it would not return the screen to smaller size. I had to press CONTROL+ALT+DELETE end the session. Now, when I restart Firefox it wants to restore the session. I have no status bar at the top and returning to home page. I hope this information helps.

Thank you very much! I tried that already but did not move the cursor high enough.
Dear Apple designers: please bring back something like a button, to help those who can not find this type of thing. Minimalistic design should be in such way that you find how to do these type of things without going to a forum.

    How do you get out of Full Screen mode in Excel? No red or yellow buttons visible. Using just installed Yosemite iOS 10.10.2

    I Don't think Microsoft updated it for those buttons. Look for a blue button with arrows in it on the right side of the menu bar.
    Also try Esc key.

  • How do I get out of "full screen mode" on my tablet?

    I don't know how I got into full screen mode first of all and I can not figure out how to get out of full screen mode. I have a tablet, my toolbar with the menu symbol is missing at the top and the bar at the bottom is missing. I don't have any keys with "F" features, so I can't press F11. Does anyone else have this problem? I have windows 8.

    Argh. There aren't many things more frustrating than an app hogging your entire screen.
    Do you have a compact keyboard? If so, there should be a key labelled ''fn'' and another key which is labelled ''F11'' (maybe in blue writing). Try holding down fn and press the F11 key.
    Alternatively touching or swiping right at the very top of the screen should reveal Firefox's toolbar - you can press the [[Image:New Fx Menu]] at the top right and then select ''full screen'' to shrink Firefox back down to size.
    Hope those ideas help! :)

  • How do I get out of "full screen" view. When I put my crusor at the top of the screen I get SOME menus showing, but nothe the "firefox" drop-down where I selected full screed (I was just trying to zoom out, actually)

    I think the question pretty well summed it up. I selected full screen mode from the "firefox" drop-down box at the top left, but once in full screen mode, the drop-down box is not available. How do I get back to the standard view??

    Press the F11 key to toggle into and out of full screen mode.
    Or, move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen and right-click the "+" (new tab) button, or in a blank area of the tab bar, or in a blank area after the address box, and exit full screen mode from the context menu.

  • How to get out of full screen mode in Firefox

    Have tried to get out of full screen mode by pressing F11 and f11 and esc but nothing works.  any suggestions?

    Shift-CMD-F toggles full screen off and on in Fx. Also, if you've put the Full Screen icon in the Firefox Toolbar, bring the mouse cursor up to the top of the screen. This will reveal the toolbar and you can click on the icon to return to normal.
    Get the icon from View>Toolbars>Customize. Drag it into the Toolbar somewhere.

  • Connect from Windows through screen sharing (VNC) and get out of full screen mode

    How do you get out of fullscreen mode?
    I connect to a OS X Lion computer through a Windows computer (which actually also is remote).
    I use TightVNC software on Windows to connect. It's the only VNC software I am able to connect to OS X Lion with. TightVNC is kind of weak otherwise in the way that it does not have features for OS X targets - like you can't send "command" key pushes, or even Ctrl pushes and other F2 etc keys just don't really work.
    Which means I cannot exit full screened apps by way of Command-F or similar. Moving the mouse cursor to the top of the screen also does not pop down the menu (although on some occasions I have been able to do this, I'm not sure how and it's terribly hard to reproduce).
    I'd need a on-screen way (like a button to click) to get out of full screen mode.
    Any ideas???

    Are you using TightVNC because you found it was the only VNC client that worked well with Mac OS X built-in VNC server?  Or is there another reason?
    Vine Server (aka OSXvnc - free to use the server)
    <http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/11283/vine-server-%26-viewer>
    plays nicer with 3rd party VNC clients, so that you could try any number of other WIndows VNC clients.  Maybe one of those will do a better job of sending Command/Control/Option keys.
    But if you do install Vine server make sure you turn off Mac OS X Screen Sharing (and/or Remote Managment) so that you do not conflict with port 5900.  Or via Vine Server configs, tell Vine Server to use a different port number, such as 5901, then make sure you connect to the correct port from your Windows client.

  • When safari is in full screen mode and I move the mouse to the top of the screen to bring up the menu bar and the bookmark bar, it does nothing.  Is anyone else having this issue?

    When safari is in full screen mode and I move the mouse to the top of the screen to bring up the menu bar and the bookmark bar, it does nothing.  Is anyone else having this issue?
    Thanks

    I just tested that since I hardly ever use full screen mode, this was the first time since I upgraded to Mountain Lion, and it worked fine for me.
    Try shutting Safari down and see if that changes anything.
    If that doesn't change anything, try shutting down and then rebooting.

    How do I get iTunes out of the "full screen" view?

    The "full screen" button that was on the left in Mavericks has been removed and is now the green dot (or rightmost of the three) on the left side of application windows now.
    If you prefer shortcuts you can also use control+command+f to move in and out of full screen mode, assuming the app(s) you are using support full screen.
