Windows 7: Taskbar disappears

Taskbar disappears

On my laptop, the task bar is at the bottom when my desktop is present. When I open my browser (Firefox), the task bar disappears and I can't get it to reappear. I right clicked on the task bar and made sure that the "lock tasbar" was checked. Any suggestions?

Does this happen when FF is minimized or less than full window? If you close the browser, does the taskbar return?

I experimented and found that clicking F11 brought the taskbar back. Thank you very much for your help.

Taskbar disappears
This has happened twice i think. Not sure what causes it but the taskbar will literally disappear. You can see my background picture where the taskbar is suppose to be. However you still see the Start Menu Launcher button on the bottom left.
