When Firefox is in fullscreen mode and Windows taskbar is set to autohide the taskbar cannot be accessed unless I press the windows key to bring up the entire start menu. Once the start menu has been accessed and the same window is in focus, it works as intended by moving the mouse to the bottom of the screen. Switching windows breaks the function again.

The taskbar is not meant to appear in fullscreen mode (F11).

it's pretty simple, here is what you gotta do;

1) write "About:config" on the search bar

2) Search for devtools.toolbox.alwaysOnTop and set it to FALSE

3) Try hovering the mouse to your taskbar

There you go !
