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"?

  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 –  Bruce Connor 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.
