Firefox 3 full screen autohide

  Sprintthegrint 14:52 29 Oct 2008

Since installing Firefox 3 I have an annoying problem. When I'm in full screen mode , which I prefer most of the time, the tab bar disappears as in what i assume is an autohide operation. I can't find any preferences to cover this either in the programme help or any of the online faqs etc. Any ideas? It never did this in 2 and as far as I know I've not changed any other settings. Thanks

Try F11 which toggles between full screen and showing the Toolbar and Taskbar.

No, F11 used to still leave the tool/address bar and the tab bar. Now it slides away as soon as the mouse pointer moves from the top edge of the screen.

browser.fullscreen.autohide set to false.
