I'm trying to get each webpage I visit to use the entire screen instead of just the middle with bars on the left and right. For example:

I use nosquint add on for Firefox but if I magnify it big enough to fit the screen it just doesn't look right. I'm not talking about the F11 full screen option or using CTRL +or-. OCN has a widescreen option: example:

I was just wondering how to get other sites to display that way without me having to manipulate every page I visit.

I kind of thought that would be the answer but was still hoping there was a way to do it.

It's the way the CSS is written, I'm afraid.

Narrow website layouts are more compatible.

You really cant do anything else other than zoom it in or out! Besides, you have a 1080p screen, that isnt something small, now think about those guys with larger resolutions!

Websites are hard coded to only allow certain widths.

You'll either need a more permanent solution of something like firebug to edit the css on your end, or a zoomed in feature.

most websites are still designed to be 960px wide, to enable accessibility to the largest amount of people, because allegedly there's a person in their closet somewhere sitting in front of a CRT.
