Firestorm

So I recently download firestorm viewer. When I go into fullscreen I can't view my other windows such as my desktop and browsers. I also have a macbook. Is there any way to fix this?

I don't recommmend using Firestorm in full screen mode on a Mac for the reasons you just cited. That mode doesn't seem to honor the screen's native resolution and (for me at least) runs at much lower resolution. To disable it, go to Avatar->Preferences->Graphics and uncheck "Fullscreen Mode", then restart the viewer.

I enabled anti-aliasing. Why is Snugs still here?

Hi, isn´t that what fullscreen means, no matter what OS.

"Games" in fullscreen disable the windowing functionalitiy, remove all command bars .....

It is not let a window use the whole screen -> on your desktop it is use the whole screen of your PC :smileywink:

Monti is right, full screen mode is implicitly exclusive mode. It has to be as the application takes total control over the video hardware.

Resolution can be less than windowed, depending on how you configure it (or how it's automatically configured for you).
