Fennec 1.1 - Portrait Browsing

Firefox 1.1 on Maemo lets you browse with your phone in a portrait orientation as well as landscape.

The browser will switch orientations automatically as you reposition the phone, as you would expect. Some browser screens are the same, only taller; others change their layout slightly to better fit the screen on which they find themselves, such as the tools screens.

If you'd like to lock the screen orientation - say you're lying down but want to read in portrait:

on_side_mobile

you can use the standard Maemo screen orientation lock key-combination to do so: Ctrl-Shift-O.
