Hi, there isn't a keyboard shortcut Keyboard shortcuts - Perform common Firefox tasks quickly, however you can right click in the tab bar - but not on a tab.

You might be able to make it auto-hide using userChrome.css See https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html and https://github.com/Timvde/UserChrome-Tweaks/blob/master/toolbars/sliding-bookmarks-bar.css Also do a search in https://www.reddit.com/r/FirefoxCSS/

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you!

A possible workaround is to use the keyboard to open the View menu (Alt+V), T opens the toolbar menu and B toggles the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Please, gents, make a simple shortcut available for this - ctrl-alt-B would be great.

It is rather annoying not having one, and the ability for mouse gestures to pick up lack of options like this is also curbed.

Or even better, cut to the chase: make sure any command can have a kb shortcut.

Hi ozimage, here in support we work with the Firefox we have today and can suggest relevant features, settings changes, and workarounds.

If you want to propose changes to future versions of Firefox, you can submit suggestions through one or more of the following links:

It would be really great if Firefox had a global shortcut creator/changer. That's probably a long ways off, but we might see one to change/deconflict the keyboard shortcuts of extensions by the end of the year or shortly thereafter. That would set the stage for something bigger.

This code in the Browser Console will toggle the Bookmarks Toolbar on/off.

(function(){ /*toggle toolbar*/
var doc = Services.wm.getMostRecentWindow("navigator:browser").window.document;
var tb = doc.getElementById("PersonalToolbar");
var c="collapsed";
if(tb){tb.setAttribute(c,tb.getAttribute(c)=="true"?"false":"true")}
})();
