bookmarks invisible in Firefox fullscreen
 
When the bookmarks list is longer than what fits vertically on the
screen, then hitting Alt+B while Firefox is in fullscreen mode
won't show the list of bookmarks. The bookmark list is there --
because it is possible to select for example the last entry with
<Up> and <Enter> -- but it is invisible. (When not in fullscreen
mode, such an overlong bookmarks list shows tiny arrows at top and
bottom and will scroll as needed.)

Is this invisibility just a local phenomenon, or are others "seeing"
this too?

This is about Firefox-2.0.0.*. It is not the menu-killing bug of 1.*

Thanks for confirming. Meanwhile I've seen it too on Kubuntu
Feisty. On Gentoo I use KDE, maybe you do too? Possibly Gnome
users don't see this?

Anyway, the bug has been reported:
