Please add full screen functionality for firefox android. It is very useful especially while using an android tablet.

I also would like this feature. My go-to app for reading PDFs and e-books on android, ReadEra, has this option to hide navigation bar and status bar, one tap anywhere on the screen to get them back.

I would love to have this on my browser too.

What? You have to be joking? Let me get this right. There is no way to go full screen/ maximize the Firefox browser so we can read pages?

Add it to the list of ways mozilla has fallen much too far  behind Edge and Chrome to continue to use. Such a basic necessary function. Lost a day of work because of this insufficiency. Goodbye

Noticed that on beta the bottom bar now hides, but the status bar is still visible. 

For a better reference, samsung browser does this well. This is currently the only thing preventing me from fully moving to FF for reading.

Still no full screen, interferes with site designs. Android Firfox 114.2.0

I am continually shocked at FF's for Android lack of innovation. This shouldn't have to be voted on. But since it took pull to refresh years to implement I wouldn't hold my breath. Sad.

Please add full screen functionality for firefox android:  sharing pictures in Firefox android is cumbersome without good functioning full screen option.

as I understand the Firefox developers team of Android version do not use this app in they real life ))) it's a shame.

FF handles BT Keyboard and mouses better than Chrome on Android.

I use Apache Guacamole (RDP client in HTML5) and the full screen option, at least when we make a shortcut (like for a PWA), is an important feature.

Thank you.

This is so easy to implement, why has this not been done yet?

FF Android is such an awesome browser otherwise. Why must it lack basic features which make people gravitate towards other browsers then?

Please, one dev just get on it and make it happen. How difficult would it be to hide the status bar and make a toggle in the settings for it??!?!!?

Honestly I don't get it.

How is there still no support for full screen on Android? Should be prioritized to even consider it a modern browser
