Open Location in iPhone Mode in Firefox


I have been hacking Firefox. Here is a simple iPhone mode add-on. This is very basic mode. You can type an address in the address field and hit ENTER. You can use the Reload button to reload the page. You can use Go Back and Go Forward buttons to navigate the history. You can use Add Bookmark button to add a bookmark to the current page. You can use the Show Bookmarks button to show the Bookmarks window. Just lkie the iPhone - the address bar is hidden when the document loads. You can reshow the address bar by clicking on the battery indicator bar.

Any URL can be invoked in the iPhone mode from command line by using the -iphone command line argument.

> firefox -iphone URL

Use the File:OpenLocation in iPhone Mode... menu item to launch the iPhone mode.

DISCLAIMER: This add-on is experimental. So no guarantees. Use the add-on at your own risk.
