Full screen can be more fun if I can always see my tabs (by default you can see when you hover your mouse around that area) and my taskbar.

I know how to make taskbar always appear. Any idea how to do this for the "tab-bar"?

Maximize the window? :) – Sasha Chedygov Sep 19 '09 at 23:05
    
no i don't want to see the title bar! – Lazer Sep 19 '09 at 23:18
    
What would be even more awesome would be to only show the tabs / location bar when they get focused somehow (through keyboard shortcuts). That is basically possible with: addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/tree-style-tab/reviews/… although it also has further side effects. – Ciro Santilli 巴拿馬文件 六四事件 法轮功 Nov 19 '15 at 6:08

  1. Type about:config on Firefox address bar.
  2. Search for browser.fullscreen.autohide
  3. Set it to false

There you go.

Works great and is ridiculously simple. +1 – Malabarba Nov 16 '09 at 21:30
    
Perfect with <addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/prospector-lessChrome-HD/…;, which auto-hides the navigation bar. – Nickolay Jun 4 '11 at 15:20

Full Fullscreen add-on does exactly that.
