Please don't dig up 8 month old threads to provide an answer that isn't even related to the "owner's" question. The Maximize / Minimize control button has nothing to do with Full Screen mode being toggled on.

@the-edmeister

If you Google "firefox full screen" (or something similar), this is the top hit. That's how an 8-month old thread gets dug up. No point in getting upset when that happens.

... and apunter is correct. The original question was, "I made my firefox full-screen; how do I change it back?" Pointing the mouse cursor toward the top right corner of the screen brings up the minimize/restore/close buttons and clicking the restore button does indeed get you out of full screen mode. It will not put you *in* full screen, but it can get you out.

Remembering F11 toggles full screen mode is probably easier, though.
