How do I auto-hide the taskbar in Firefox fullscreen mode?

more options

Hello. Currently when I'm in fullscreen mode in Firefox, I can 'reveal' the toolbars at the top of the screen by moving the pointer there. However, I cannot 'reveal' the taskbar when I move the pointer to the bottom of the screen, even though it autohides very nicely in non-fullscreen mode. So, does anyone know a way to enable autohide for the taskbar when in fullscreen..? I'm running Firefox 52.7.3 (32bit) in Vista. Thanks!

Hi, does not F11 work to hide/unhide both ?

Fyi : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-windows-xp-and-vista

All so Firefox 52.9.0esr out on June 26 (same time as 60.1.0esr) will be the last major update for Firefox 52 ESR apart from any 52.9.x esr updates for security or allowed stability fixes.

Firefox 60.2.0esr will be out Aug 21 and Firefox 52 ESR will be EOL then. So people will have to upgrade to 60.2.0esr to keep getting security updates if they have not manually upgraded to 60.x.o ESR already. Firefox 60 ESR will require Windows 7, 8, 10 & is Quantum Based.

Hello. I'm aware I can use F11 to access both the top and bottom bars, but what I'd like is to be able to use the mouse pointer to trigger the auto-hidden taskbar into view, in the same way I can do when using the non-fullscreen mode. Thanks
