Runnning MAC OS X (Lion 10.7.5). I bookmarked sites I frequent to display beneath address bar. Problem: When I go to fullscreen mode, they disappear.


When I go to fullscreen mode, all my bookmarks disappear. When I minimize the window, they reappear.

My question is: How do I keep my bookmarks ontop/displayed so that when I'm in fullscreen mode, I don't have to minimize the window to click on a bookmark then go back to fullscreen mode.

The autohide mode during fullscreen I do not mind just the issue with my bookmarks disappearing during fullscreen mode
