On my laptop when firefox is maximized, I can only see 4 lines of the bookmarks and "3 line" toolbar. If I maximize or window firefox onto an extended monitor I can see the full tool bar. How do I get firefox to show the full toolbar all the time? See images for reference.

As a follow up, I never had this issue before I changed my laptop to be under my primary monitor in display settings. I went back into display setting and set my laptop monitor to be next to my main display and the menu went back to being full when firefox was on laptop. Any idea why this might happen?

Something with detecting the screen size or what the system is telling firefox. I have seen many weird behaviors using secondary monitors, depending on what the OS imagines is going on. Sometimes i would just have to go and switch everything around and back, or disconnect and delete the second monitory and add it back. (None particularly involving Firefox.)

This is possibly a z-index issue. The z-index for the drop down is 0 and the z-index for the website content is 1 causing the drop-down list to get hidden.

I'm not sure what the fix would be.
