Ok this is really strange. Left the room and one of my cats walked across the keyboard and pressed some buttons. I came in and the window was at full screen. I don't have any task bar. I don't have any tool bars or the bar up top which has the name of this page where the minimizer is. I pressed all the F# and every other button and found between the ctrl and alt button is a button that displays the task bar. The F6 button displays the tabs only and I knew about ctrl D to bookmark the pages. I pressed the Home button and it opened a new window (but without the task bar) so I could get at my bookmarks and write this.

I didn't loose anything and could just close it up and reopen it but I just want to know what the buttons were hit to get rid of the bars in case it happens again!
Thanks a bunch!

I use Firefox and yes it is! It might be a couple of buttons pressed since they do have fat toes. Any idea what did it?
