How do I remove the status bar?

more options

I'd like to remove the status bar (not get the "old" one back or whatever, just get rid of it). I can't find any useful information with a google search and there doesn't SEEM to be an add-on for this.

Understanding the changes since 3.6.*

You can make Firefox 6.0 look like Firefox 3.6.*, see numbered items 1-10 in the following topic Fix Firefox 4.0 toolbar user interface, problems (Make Firefox 4.0 thru 6.0, look like 3.6). Whether or not you make changes, you should be aware of what has changed and what you have to do to use changed or missing features.

If you have extensions that places information or buttons on the Add-ons toolbar then that toolbar may reappear automatically.

The bar I'm talking about isn't the thin blue one that spans the browser with an x on the left side (the one that responds to "Ctrl /"). I'm talking about the one that appears in either the bottom right or left corner and pops up whenever a webpage is loading or I hover over a link. Sorry if I have the wrong name for it. Also, if it helps any, I'm using the Japanese Firefox, don't know if that'd make a difference.
