Default Getting Firefox out of full-screen

Sorry if this is the wrong place ot ask, but I could not find a
comp.webbrowsers or alt.comp.webbrowsers group....

The menus and space for entering URLs have disappeared from Firefox.
Perhaps I pressed a wrong key somewhere -- how can I get them back?

F11 key

It's a toggle key - on/off.

I think it's F11 for toggling full screen - somewhere around there,
anyway. Though in full-screen mode, I think if you also move the mouse
somewhere (near top of screen is it?) the address box/bar reappears.

That's how he [Dr. Who] seems to me. He's always been someone who gets the
/Guardian/. There are some parts of the universe where it's harder to get hold

Thanks very much. That worked.

You're welcome! (I just checked - it [F11 and mousing to top edge] work
even in my old Firefox 27; I have the feeling they might have been there
in all Firefox, and even perhaps back in Netscape.)

If you're worried that your house is haunted by a ghost and might need
exorcising, there's an easy way of working out if it is or it isn't: it isn't.

The F11 thing is useful to know (which I didn't). F12 also does some
interesting things.
