When I press F11 to make Pale Moon fullscreen, my LXQt panel (taskbar) is automatically hidden.

"Autohide taskbar" should be a setting on your desktop or window manager. What desktop are you using? GNOME/Unity or something simpler?

i dont think i am saying it correctly.When i press f11 for fullscreen, i cannot see the taskbar at all.Back in the days,with the help of the autohide extention,i can simply place the cursor at the bottom of the fullscreen to see the taskbar.But that extention is dead now.I want to know if there is any other way to get the same functionality.

Right click the panel (what you call the taskbar) and select Panel Settings > Panel Preferences > Advanced, under Automatic hiding, place check in > Minimize panel when not in use, reduce > Size when minimized to 0 pixels.

Just to make it simple, i want to see the taskbar when the browser i.e. palemoon is in fullscreen mode.(by pressing f11). i have done that before with autohide extention.Is there any other way to do that? some userchrome.css hack or something?
