Split screen mode for Firefox

  • Idea
  • Updated 6 years ago
I had the idea of split screen browsing, you have yet the possibility to browse on different sites in the same time by tabs, but what i would like to see is a possibility like on tv, where you can have split screen mode, so you could surf on two or more websites beside and compare them, this is very usefull when you are making research for an essay and so on, i would find such a function really usefull, i often had the situation to have to open firefox two times and minimize the two to compare texts or products, so i think this would be an enhancement for firefox and its users.

was a pleasure to contribute to the project

Have you already tried "Split Browser"?

See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire...

I have the split screen app from Firefox. How to I remove it? Everytime I move my moose close to the edge of the screen, it splits into another screen, whether I want it or not. It is annoying. Please reply at ghahn1492@gmail.com

Thats cool:), thanks very much! So why not integrating that as a standard function in Firefox instead of an addon??

hey ghahn1492, you can just deinstall the addon, and then its gone again, there are also ways to change command, but can't tell you, because i deinstalled it because it took too much cpu. hope i could help you.

I could not find any program in "add remove programs" in control panel that matched the split screen add-on. Do you have the program name, or is there a different way to uninstall it that you know about?

Normally there is no problem with this, just click on desinstall, and its gone, are you sure you did it right? Otherwise post the problem, to problems, perhaps someone can help you.
