After upgrading from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion Firefox 43 longer hides bookmarks and toolbars in full screen

Full Screen now only hides the menu bar. I have a 2010 MacBook Pro with tons of fully functioning but "dated" applications and only upgraded to Mountain Lion in order to let my iPhone 6s talk to iTunes 12.3 (which was not available in Snow Leopard). I do not want to upgrade my OS any further because of the risk of a more current OS not being compatible with my applications. I've searched the web repeatedly to correct the issue but have not found anything that is specifically applicable to my scenario. Hoping to find a solution and achieve true Full Screen functioning again. Thank you.

Tried that. It was already on default / true. Still have the issue.

Thanks for the link to the add-on. Now I'm halfway there. Old Lion Fullscreen now hides my bookmarks bar, but tabs and the tool / address / search bar still do not hide.

Update: Old LIon Fullscreen has evidently solved the problem. When I used the fullscreen function today it worked properly. I'm thinking it was likely simply restarting Firefox, which I likely did not do prior to my previous remarks. So thank you, cor-el, you solved the problem and I'm back in business.
