Hi, to hide the status bar completely, please paste the code below to your userChrome.css. #statuspanel { display: none !important; }

Thanks to Elysium it now works great

I'll post the steps on how to do it for anyone else that has this issue

You'll need to locate the default profiles folder so follow this

Search in your browser about:support to bring up the troubleshooting information page. From there locate Profile Folder and click Open Folder to open your profile folder. This folder should have a random name a dot and default (#######.default)

Once there you will need to make a new folder to do this right click in the folder then go new then folder and name this new folder chrome in all lowercase once made go into that folder. Keep this folder open because we will be needing it later.

now you need to open up a notepad to do this. Windows button + R and type notepad into the run box.

Once open you will need to copy and paste the text below into the notepad.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#statuspanel {
   display: none !important;

}

Once you have that done click file in the top left then click Save As. You will want to save this to a place you can access easily like the desktop. Name this text file userChrome.css its CaseSensitive so be careful. Once you have named it make sure to cange the save type from Text Documents (*,txt) too All files (*.*).

Ok now we have the userChrome.css ready all you have to do is drag and drop userChrome.css into the chrome folder we made earlyer.

Restart the browser and your done.
