In routed mode, the command 'show arp' will display Interface, IP, MAC and age for known IP addresses. Perhaps this table will give you the information you need.

Hello,

The show mac-address-table command will only work in the Transparent firewall.

You can take a look at the command reference here. You will notice the bullet is only under transparent.

You can do "show firewall"  to see if the firewall is in routed mode or transparent.

Hope this helps.
