User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:6.0a1) Gecko/20110414 Firefox/6.0a1

This is a feature request: Ctrl-[click link] should un-hide the tab bar when viewing full screen.

Currently, if a user has un-selected the option "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" then they will not have any indication of the opening of a new tab when they Ctrl-click to open a link in a new tab, while using full screen mode.

Easy fix to my mind is: un-hide the tab bar whenever a new tab is opened, when using full screen.  This also fixes the issue of websites which attempt to open new windows, that instead land in a new tab.

Perhaps there is a better solution, but this is certainly a problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Enter full screen mode.
2.  Browse to a page with links.
3.  Hold down the Ctrl button and click a link.
4.  Note that there's no indication of a new tab.

Actual Results:  
There don't appear to be any.  You could Ctrl-click ad infinitum and you'd see no indication of a new tab until you deliberately move the cursor to the tab bar.

Expected Results:  
Perhaps pop open the tab bar?  Or maybe even just dangle a single tab from the top of the screen?
