I can't reproduce it on Win 7, FF40 is restarted in FS mode and if I quit FS, the bookmark toolbar is displayed again.

Can you test:
1) in safe mode:

2) with a fresh profile:

Does it work?

The affected version is not FF40 but FF Developer Edition (FF42?).
"about:support" does contain the following infos:

"application": {
  "name": "Firefox",
  "version": "42.0a2",
  "buildID": "20150917004025",
  "userAgent": "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0",
  "safeMode": false,
  "updateChannel": "aurora",
  "supportURL": "https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/42.0a2/WINNT/de/",
  "numTotalWindows": 1,
  "numRemoteWindows": 1,
  "remoteAutoStart": true

I hope it is ok to report any issues for the developer edition here.

Anyway, I have tested what you requested with the following results:

1) Safe mode did not help, same behaviour as reported. Additionally I tried with manually disabled plugins and addons (all of them), with same result.

2) With a newly created blank profile (by using "firefox.exe -P" and creating a new one) it worked as expected - closing in fullscreen mode opened correctly in fullscreenmode again.

Thanks a lot!

I am experiencing a similar issue in FF41.

Steps to reproduce are the same. (Enter fullscreen. Close FF. Reopen. Exit fullscreen).

Unlike the original issue, when I reopen FF, the browser does open in fullscreen (from which the bookmarks toolbar is not visible). When I exit fullscreen, the bookmark toolbar shows up, but it is empty (no buttons).

I am running Kubuntu 15.04.
