How do I show menu bar on second monitor when first is full screen?

more options

I have a dual monitor set up (Macbook Air). I often use one monitor to play a full screen video, while still doing work, browsing, or whatever on the other screen.

I used to do this on Chrome all the time, but just switched to FF, which is better in every way EXCEPT:

when I go full screen on one of my monitors, the menu bar disappears in both, if I'm still in Firefox, even if the other window is in focus. Yes, it comes back if I switch to another app, but often I'm still in Firefox and need my menu bar... How can I make this come back?

Let me know what other info you might need to help.

Did you contact Apple support. For Windows O/S you just expand the video options and both screens will have a Taskbar on each screen.

Nope, it is only happening with Firefox, not any other browsers (Chrome, Safari), so seems to be a browser issue not an Apple one.
