How to hide the address/URL bar again ?

Hello all,

I run a bunch of web applets locally on my computer for personal use only (http://localhost/...), and until recently I could successfully launch FF using window.open(...) with the new window NOT showing the address bar (because it takes space and looks ugly within the applet, so I want to avoid it at all cost).

I believe this changed with FF 76 (I now run v. 76.0.1 64-bit on a Windows10 based computer), anyway at this point it seems impossible to NOT have the address bar show up in a FF window. :-/

To be clear : I have searched for a solution in this forum and elsewhere, found the solution to another new problem with FF ("megabar"), also seen the trick to hide the url in the address bar - but this is not what I'm looking for : I just want to *get rid of the address bar*, period.

Thanxx in advance for any help with this issue (surprised noone else seems to complain about this). :)

all i want is the userchrome.css to hide everything until i hover anywhere on the browser. not just when i hover the titlebar, as my code does now

 #navigator-toolbox {
   position: relative;
   height: 20px;
   margin-bottom: 0px;
   opacity: .3;
   overflow: auto;
 }
 #navigator-toolbox:hover {
   height: auto;
   margin-bottom: 0px;
   opacity: 1;
   overflow: show;
 }

if my mouse cursor is anywhere on the browser then i want nothing to be hidden. when my mouse cursor leaves firefox, then i want everything to be hidden.

I'm using Windows 10 on one computer and Windows 7 on another need a solution which will work for both.

When I upgraded to Firefox 72, I think it was, I had a problem with the tabs which I wanted to show below the address bar. Someone from this forum helped by guiding me to a userChrome change and a userContent.css file. That worked fine and the tabs were below the address bar.

The next time I upgraded Firefox to 75 I think it was, the address bar wasn't working the way it used to. I wanted to be able to have the whole address bar selected when I clicked on it so I could type over what was there and enter a new address. Again, someone on this forum very kindly helped me by showing me how to change the settings on browser.urlbar.OpenViewOnFocus and 3 others and the problem was solved.

Now I come to Firefox 77 and the tabs are showing above the address bar again AND the address bar is no longer working as I wanted it to.

The OpenViewOnFocus settings are the way they I was advised to change them, but the tabs are still above the address bar. Someone acknowledged that changing the OpenViewOnFocus will no longer correct the tab locations and suggested a userChrome.css change. But I've already got one program in the userChrome.css file that I used the fix the address bar program.

Can I have two different programs in the userChrome.css field?

If so, can anyone help with the userChrome.css program that would take care of both problems? and do I still need the userContent.css file?

Why does Firefox keep doing this?

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

Starting a few days ago, the thumbnail images in Google Photos albums 'vanished' - see the screenshot. The same thing happened in a Chrome browser, but I upgraded to the latest Chrome version, and that fixed the problem with that browser. Waterfox is still compromised in this regard. (Per the second screen shot, the 'album covers' images are OK, and if you click on a 'blank' thumbnail in an album, the corresponding image loads.) Any clues here, folks? Thank you . . .

In Google search the default colors for links are blue for a link that I haven't looked at and a slightly different shade of blue. I have trouble seeing the difference between the 2. I have changed the link color of the link that I clicked on to orange. But when I change the "override colors specified by the page with your selections above" from "never" to "always". It changes the colors on the web page. How do I keep the orange color on visited links without effecting the colors on the web pages?

Instead of having my bookmarks under the toolbar, it's along the left side. I have many things in chrome.css, like one that gives me 4 rows of bookmarks, but on the side, it's only one. If I click on one of the ones I can see, it does go to the website, as I can see the correct url in the address bar. However, everything is blank. Even about:config is blank. Safe mode works, but of course doesn't give me my bookmarks or anything else. The extensions that Safe Mode says are disabled are: Amazon Assistant for Firefox, Dashlane, and New Tab Override. Do you need the things from chrome.css to help me troubleshoot? I can't keep using Safe Mode, don't care for Chrome, and refuse to use IE.

Am using the ESR channel for Firefox (32-bit), and am at the latest version 52.9.0 My Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 is running WIndowXP SP3 Two issues: (1) Am running into problems with one or two sites who appear to be lax about initializing their variables. The workaround is to reload a page once or twice. Or, in the case of input being required, to enter incorrect data the first time. My assumption is that new browsers are more "forgiving". (2) Flash is being discontinued. Will Firefox 52.9.0 (32 bit) be able to cope with what I assume is the move too HTML 5 Happy to help in anyway with either or both issues.

Is there a way to increase the spacing between toolbars?

I prefer my tabs just above the page and below the URL & "Bookmarks" toolbars so I found the CSS code to move them, but I had to make their text bigger to read, and now my bars are overlapping each other (see attached photo.)

Is there a way to increase the spacing between toolbars so they don't overlap? TIA.
