Issue Summary: When using a maximized Firefox window with the Windows taskbar set to automatically hide, the taskbar sometimes fails to appear when moving the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen.

Steps to Reproduce:

  • Set the Windows taskbar to automatically hide.
  • Maximize the Firefox window.
  • Use Firefox normally and intermittently move the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen.

Expected Behavior: The Windows taskbar should appear when the mouse cursor is moved to the bottom of the screen.

Actual Behavior: The taskbar does not appear consistently when the mouse cursor is moved to the bottom of the screen. This issue is specific to Firefox and occurs frequently, though not every time. The taskbar functions normally with other applications.

System Information:

  • Windows Version: Windows 10 Pro 22H2 x64

  • This issue significantly impacts the user experience as it disrupts workflow and navigation.

Steps Taken to Resolve:
