I use FirefoxDeveloperEdition 40.0a2, with OSX 10.10.3. After I set a youtube video to full screen and then return to normal view, the toolbar ( Bookmarks ) is gone. Everything is still set the way it is supposed to ( display toolbar and so on ). After I restart firefox everything is back to normal. I removed all disabled all addons, but it did not change anything. Any Ideas how to solve this?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

First I need to add that if I open a new window, the toolbar is displayed in that window, not in the old one. So a restart is not necessary after all.

Of course I tried to set the toolbar to view again. But as I said in my post all options are still set on view toolbar, it just isn't viewed.

I updated all plugins one at a time and tried again. The problem is still around.

I managed to narrow the problem down. As far as I can tell the problem only occurs on the youtube page, while using the HTML5 player. I installed YouTubeFlashPlayer an extension that forces youtube to use flashplayer instead of the HTML5 one. This solves the issue.

Second, please make sure that you report this to the developers at input.mozilla.org.

There was a work around in the past https://addons.mozilla.org/eN-US/fire.../old-lion-fullscreen/

Does the Bookmarks Toolbar reappear if you disable and re-enable this toolbar?

  • "3-bar" Firefox menu button > Customize > Show/Hide Toolbars
  • View > Toolbars
    Tap
  • Right-click empty toolbar area

Does the toolbar appear if you open a new window?
