Unlike GTK+, the Cocoa toolbar is considered by design as extension of
the title bar, not part of the window contents.  So a window without
the title bar cannot display the Cocoa toolbar.

The Mac port uses Emacs-native toolbars, which are used in W32 and
non-GTK+ X11 builds, instead of Cocoa ones for fullscreen frames:


You may want to try this if you can accept its
experimental/hackers-only status.  (That does not mean it is
unstable.)  Its fullscreen mode is supposed to be robust against
several configuration changes trigerred by either frame parameters or
external environments such as monitor configurations.  If you find
some problematic cases about the fullscreen mode on the Mac port,
please report them to the address written in the README-mac file, not
