Google-chrome – How to get chromium/chrome to open a pdf full screen


When I open a pdf in chromium on my Ubuntu machine or in chrome on my chromebook, it opens it in "continuous" mode. This means you see a number of pages at a time. I can't find a setting to make it full screen or even a single page at a time.

Is this possible?

    Edit: If this does not help, Firefox opens full-screen PDFs in single page view by default.
