Toolbars are tough to access when the "Hide Toolbars" option is selected on a Macbook Pro - Mac OS ventura, Monterey
Hello Team Mozilla,
I have been a user of firefox since a lot of time. I purchased a Macbook Pro M1 Pro 14 inch. Since I purchased a smaller screen model, I wanted to efficiently use the screen space available. I have tested Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Brave. I am glad that only and only Firefox provides a Hide toolbar option which other browsers are not offering. It is a game changer for a 14 inch macbook pro as it offers maximum utilization of the space. For that I applaud Firefox.
But the accessibility of tabs takes a serious hit when I enable the option. The place where the mouse pointer has to be for the toolbar to unhide is quite literally a line. Anywhere above or below it will not show the toolbar. if we go too far, the MAC OS close,minimize window option come up. For the toolbars to show up one has to just touch the menubar of MacOS. While switching tabs its a real pain. I have to pause and look at the pointer and slowly move my mouse to touch the menubar at the right speed.
Please please please do something about this. Firefox is providing the best utilization of space for a Macbook Pro. I do not know if the Firefox team is aware of this, but its brilliant. But the toolbar accessibility makes the feature unusable. It would be great if we could access the toolbar easily for tab switching.

Normally the Navigation Toolbar would appear in Full Screen mode if you press the keyboard shortcut to set focus to the location bar (Command+L, for search Command+K), but if a game or media player has focus then keyboard shortcuts may not work (they consume key presses).
I think a simple solution to this problem would be to add "Hide Toolbars" to the view menu. From what I understand, on macOS, a simple keyboard shortcut would allow us to toggle the toolbars on and off when in full screen.
