Since the recently installed Windows updates (that presumably included IE11), the auto-hide function has been buggy in full screen mode. Oftentimes the address bar doesn't disappear at all, sometimes it takes seemingly random (though irritatingly long) amounts of time. Once it has disappeared, the only way to get it back is to use a keyboard shortcut that summons it or to right click. Moving the cursor to the top of the screen does not summon the address bar, and having to use a shortcut or right click to switch tabs is growing more and more irritating.

I have the same problem after installing IE11. Went back to IE10 and all is fine again. Autohide works perfectly again. Let me know when it is fixed and will reinstall IE11.
