Avoid zoomed window resizing when hiding toolbars Apps
There are several applications which I use zoomed so I can have the maximum available space to work. Sometimes I even hide the toolbar, but this causes the window to resize too, reducing its size. But if you zoom the window again, the toolbar now can be shown and hidden without changing the size of the window.

BTW, although I guess this is common for previous versions, I'm working on 10.5.6.

I think the OP means "maximized" and not "zoomed". A zoomed window isn't the biggest size possible, but is sized to fit the content (which means hiding the toolbar would most definitely reduce the size of the whole window).

For instance, this hint doesn't make any sense with Finder or Camino, which implement "zoom", but does make since with Firefox and Mail, which implement the windows-style "maximize" (though hopefully this will be fixed in Firefox soon, as a bug is filed for it:
