I run Firefox maximized in an isolated environment (red border around the window). However, I notice that the Windows taskbar remains hidden and only appears when I press the Windows key. With other programs that are not running in an isolated environment when I move the mouse cursor to the bottom of the monitor the Windows taskbar appears as per my normal settings.

In the case of Firefox that I described above is it by design that the Windows taskbar does not appear when the mouse moves towards it?

I guess you use taskbar autohide feature? When it's hidden and shown only when you move your mouse near it.

And I guess you have FireFox running on the main desktop, not on a separate one?

And what FireFox version do you use?

Is it just the case of FireFox or other maximized isolated programs also make taskbar behave this way?

I use the taskbar autohide feature and Firefox is running on the main desktop.

My Firefox version is 67.0.4 (64-bit).

Other maximized isolated programs also make the taskbar behave this way.
