bookmarks at toolbar disapper after turning on fullscreen mode

When I turned on the full screen mode, the bottom and the top would disapper and that is perfect. But, when I moved up my cursor to the top trying to reveal the search bar and the bookmarks, only the search bar showed up and the bookmarks would only appear again when I exited the full screen mode. Is there anyway to make the bookmarks to stay under the search bar during the full screen mode and only would be showed when I moved up my cursor to the top?

I found out that I could still press crtl + I to make the bookmarks to show during fullscreen mode, but that looked kind of different....

You can keep the Bookmarks Toolbar visible with the main toolbar using a custom style rule. I don't know if there is a simpler way.

You apply custom style rules to Firefox's toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This take about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

/*
   Override hiding of Bookmarks Toolbar in F11 full screen
   when you roll down the tabs/main toolbar 
*/
#navigator-toolbox[inFullscreen="true"] #PersonalToolbar {
  visibility: unset !important;
}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup. If the Bookmarks Toolbar is displayed before going into full screen, it should roll down with the main toolbar after you're in full screen.

Success?
