Firefox in windows tablet mode, drag down to access taskbar?

Posted

Is it possible at all to access the taskbar to firefox while in tablet mode through a gesture or action? I cannot seem to find a way to access the taskbar after putting it in fullscreen while using the tablet mode of my laptop, meaning i have to use the keyboard to exit fullscreen. If this is not currently a feature, is there the possibility or plan of this being added in a future update? Thanks.

Hi.

Have you tried swiping in from the left-hand side of the screen?

On my Windows 10 tablet, swiping from the left-hand side brings up Windows' app switcher, with the taskbar at the bottom of the screen as normal.

It does bring up the app switcher, and access to the task bar yes, but it doesn't give me access to the task bar of Firefox where I can use the URL or tab witching features. Thank you for the suggestion.

Ah, I see! Have you tried swiping down from the top of the screen? This should bring up the tab switching controls and address bar.
