How do I Maximize the "New Bookmark" window (i.e. "Bookmarks > File Bookmark > New Bookmark")? What I find is that when I click the "Maximize" icon at the top right of the window, it only maximizes in the horizontal direction! I, have discovered, however, that if I right-click the top border of the window and choose "Maximize", it maximizes in both directions! This seems to be to be a bug -- is there actually a reason for this action?

What I wish is for it to default to the maximized mode. At least, a click on the "Maximize" Icon should achieve it. I'm leaving the "Opera" environment for the Seamonkey integrated mail feature that Opera threw away! Opera Bookmarks were always maximized. I almost gave up on Mozilla over these two issues: 1) Firefox only has "Simple" integrated email, and 2) I thought Seamonkey didn't have an indication that a URL was already Bookmarked. The Maximize problem was rubbing salt in the wound. Then I discovered the "Bookmark" icon at the right of the URL bar, and found that it was more efficient than either Firefox OR Opera!!! So now I want to overcome remaining obstacles.

I'm using Seamonkey version 2.46a1 on Debian 8.6 in an ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO Mother Board.

Thanks for your help.

>> version 2.46a1

Why do you use a1? It still has some problems compared to the final 2.46.

2.46 is available here: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/seamonk ... ases/2.46/

The dialog will currently only save the horizontal width. I tried to save the vertical height also when fixing a bug in 2.40 but ran into problems and out of time. Some user css might do the job.

I'm not seeing any 'Maximise' button in the 'New Bookmark' window. Is this something that is only available in Linux? I'm using Win 7 Pro.

Regards,

Dave.

Do you mean "File Bookmark"? I set this in userChrome.css to fix the size:
Code: Select all
/* Increase size/height of the expanded bookmarks panel */
#editBMPanel_folderTree {
min-width:360px !important; min-height:584px !important;}
#bookmarkproperties {
min-width:810px !important; min-height:880px !important;}

I did not want it maximized, just large enough to show all the folders.

Ctrl + Shift + B > File > New Bookmark.

Not really that hard to understand the OP, I thought.

For me, Ctrl + Shift + B opens a private browser window and there is no 'New Bookmark' under 'File'. If I go to: Bookmarks | Manage Bookmarks | File New Bookmark this is what I get:

As you noted, Dave, the OP is using Linux, as I am. Guess the mystery maximise button is a Linux thing.

Yep, that maximise button is Linux-specific. And IIRC, different desktop environments and window managers behave very differently here.

mr.Lauren, what desktop environment and window manager are you using?
