remove sidebar'

You can see what sidebars are available from the View menu, if you don't see the "View" menu then press the "Alt" key first, the View > Sidebars > click on the one with the checkmark and it will disappear.

Since you can ony have one sidebar through Firefox itself, you can bring up the same or a different sidebar to replace it or to toggle the same one off.

Try "Ctrl+B" then once more.
