From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.6+) Gecko/20011214 BuildID: 20011214004 After using this build of 0.9.6 and the modern theme for at least three days, suddenly almost all of the toolbars vanish in every Navigator window when I move to a new URL. The Navigation toolbar is still there, but the only controls available are the back, forward, refresh, and stop buttons. Is this related to bug <A HREF="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showvotes.cgi?bug_id=43350">43350</A>? That bug concerns the Composer and the Mail components, though. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Switch themes (?) - not sure about this step but I am using the Modern theme instead of the classic default.... 2. Open Mozilla or create a new Navigator window to create a Navigator window with all the toolbars 3. Enter URL into field to the left of "Go" button and press return 4. Toolbars vanish Actual Results: Most of the components in the Navigator toolbar vanish (except the Back, Forward, Refresh, and Stop buttons) and all of the other available toolbars (Personal, Status and Component) vanish as well. Expected Results: The toolbars shouldn't have vanished. I have looked through the Preferences, and there's no options for minimizing the theme's controls. To my knowledge, I have not selected any options that control this. All of the toolbars, including the Navigation toolbar, can be refreshed by creating a new navigator window or reinstalling the modern theme, but they vanish after I enter a new URL. I can retrieve the Status, Component, and Personal toolbars in an affected window by using the View>Show/Hide command. In this situation, the Show/Hide submenu shows those three toolbars as visible (still checked) even though they vanish after Mozilla moves to a new URL.
I found a workaround shortly after reporting this bug. Since I couldn't use the browser in Modern, I switched back to Classic. When I switched, the components in the Navigator toolbar was replaced by this button called "Normal Screen" that I had never seen before. I clicked this button and all of the components were back where they belonged. Then I switched back to Modern and all seemed well. To verify, I closed Mozilla and restarted. The toolbars remained upon restart, even if I switched URLs. Could this bug have something to do with a piece of old functionality in previous Mozilla builds? I remember some sort of "minimize" function in a build of 0.9.3 or something like that....
You probably hit F11 (Full Screen mode). Marking as wfm.
Using 0.9.7 on Linux, I had the same problem. Pressing F11 does resolve this issue. The question remains: why does the browser come up with all toolbars visable, but only after selecting an URL the toolbars disappear as described? I don't think "full screen mode" should be a setting that is kept after the browser is restarted.
I don't see it in the recent build, can anyone see this again?
The Full Screen misbehavior is really a major bug. The attachment shows how unclear what's going on. One thing that isn't happening is that the "Full Screen" option in the View menu isn't checked even though the option is selected. Another problem is that it isn't actually full screen--it just changes the internals of the window (see attachment). The third problem is that the initial window created doesn't go into full screen mode until the url is changed for the first time. If this can't be fixed, then fullscreen mode for the Mac (is it the same way on the PC?) should be turned off.
The old fullscreen stuff doesn't exist any more on Mac afaik.
