When I go full screen by dragging the browser window to the top of the monitor (Windows 10): My tabs row, toolbar and bookmarks disappear. There is a big blank white space where they should be. Screen shot attached. So can't use the instructions to exit full screen mode by clicking the menu button, because it's not there. The only thing I've found to work is to refresh firefox.

If you mouse to the top they should appear. You can turn off auto-hide in fullscreen by going to about:config and adjusting browser.fullscreen.autohide

You can also enter/exit fullscreen by pressing F11

Thanks Eve. Mousing to the to does not do anything. But F11 works. Thank you.
