if there's not already an option to autohide the bookmarks toolbar (like the address bar and tabs when in F11 mode [fullscreen])

can there be?

so like, on default the bookmark toolbar wouldn't show, but when I move my mouse into the specified area it appears (with the same animation as f11 mode)

 thank you,

let me know if i can already do that and if I'm just dumb.

 just to be clear, I want the tabs and url/address bar and tabs to always be there.

Actually might be cool to have options to autohide the tab bar too (separately).

 thanks again,

graham

You can possibly set the Bookmarks Toolbar to only show on the Firefox Home page (about:home and about:newtab).

You can possibly use code in userChrome.css to show the Bookmarks Toolbar on hover, but it is a lot easier to make the Bookmarks Toolbar visible in Full Screen Mode if that is sufficient.

:root[inFullscreen] #PersonalToolbar {
  visibility: visible !important;
}

Note that you need to have the BT visible in normal mode to have it also visible in Full Screen Mode with this code userChrome.css.

In Firefox 69 and later you need to set this pref to true on the about:config page to enable userChrome.css and userContent.css in the chrome folder.

More info about userContent.css and userChrome.css in case you are not familiar: *https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html
