How can I hide "Transferring data..." status?

I want to hide the "Transferring data..." status that shows on the lower left of the browser screen because it is as hazardous as a flickering icon, from a usability standpoint.

Re: How can I hide "Transferring data..." status?

You can hide specific status pop-up messages with code in userChrome.css if you still want to see the links on hover.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.


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

#statusbar-display[label^="Looking"] {display:none !important;}
#statusbar-display[label^="Connect"] {display:none !important;}
#statusbar-display[label^="Waiting"] {display:none !important;}
#statusbar-display[label^="Transfer"] {display:none !important;}
