Hello everyone ! This is my first time here.

I would like your help on how can we hide or remove the URL status bar at the bottom left?

This page may reveal addresses that are not necessary and pose little security concerns.

I found various things in the forums like for example this

https://actualwizard.com/hide-url-link-in-browser-status-bar

there may be a solution with htlm and javascript but as I am not a coder I do not know more.


Thank you for helping me (and it would be even better if your solution is in video).

Create a userChrome.css file to hide the status panel.

Step 1) Locate your Firefox profile. Assuming you're on Windows, you can find it through file explorer by typing: %APPDATA%\Mozilla

Navigate to Firefox, then Profiles, and then you should find a folder named with random characters.default

The exact file path should look roughly like this: C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\abc123.default

Step 2) Create a new folder called chrome within the Profiles folder. Name is case-sensitive

Step 3) Create a new text file called userChrome.css within the chrome folder. Name is case-sensitive and ensure the file extension ends with .css and not .txt

Step 4) Copy the following lines of CSS code into userChrome.css You can open and edit with any text editor such as Notepad Be sure to save it when you're done

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
#statuspanel { display: none !important; }


Step 5) Toggle on user profile stylesheets. In Firefox address bar, type: about:config Accept the risk and continue In the search preference name bar, type: toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets Change the settings to true by toggling the switch

Step 6) Restart Firefox for customization to take effect.
