showing/hiding tab strip and url bar in fullscreen causes web page content to reflow/"jump"
(Firefox :: General, enhancement)
(Reporter: msclrhd, Unassigned)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0b13pre) Gecko/20110317 Firefox/4.0b13pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0b13pre) Gecko/20110317 Firefox/4.0b13pre In fullscreen mode, firefox displays the web page such that it takes up the entire screen. This is good. The tab strip and url/navigation bar are: 1. hidden under normal usage in fullscreen mode; 2. shown when the mouse moves to the top of the screen; 3. hidden again when the mouse moves away from the tab strip and navigation bar. When transitioning from 2 to 3 and 3 to 2, firefox resizes the we page area to allow for the now visible/hidden UI elements. This results in the web page "jumping" which is jarring. Better would be for the tab strip and url/navigation bar to be overlayed on top of the web page so that the page content does not jump. Reproducible: Always
