Cannot get auto-hide fullscreen functionality to work

Posted

Hello,

I've installed Firefox on MacOS 10.14.6, and I am having trouble with the setting that sets the toolbar to hide when I'm in fullscreen mode except when the mouse is hovering at the top. This was a feature I found really useful in Safari, and it seems like it has existed in Firefox before, but no fixes previously listed on the site seem to work. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge or CSS that would work to fix it?

Key thing: Browser.fullscreen.autohide does not work whether set to true or false.

Try this extension:

It's not quite what I'm looking for as it doesn't have the hover functionality and requires pressing the keyboard shortcut when I want to switch tabs, but it is half of the way there so thank you anyway!
