I have the latest version of Firefox (18) on Windows XP. Why is it that the horizontal scroll-bar appears only when needed and not other times? There is no way that I have found to make the horizontal scroll bar permanently show. Why doesn't Firefox show a permanent bottom toolbar, like in IE?

That depends on the size of the webpage you're visiting and your monitor's resolution. On a wide screen monitor, you generally don't see that bar, since the pages will appear in their entirety.

Probably because we can't scroll when there is nothing to scroll. Do you know of any application in which the scroll bar appears when the content fits within the window?

IE9 does not have a permanent bottom toolbar, at least not by default. There seems to be a concerted effort by Microsoft and many others to make operating systems and applications less flexible and much harder to use and to hide more and more functions. Firefox developers aren't as bad as some in this regard, but they are making efforts in that direction.
