How to disable a toolbar?

When I disable a toolbar it will be enabled again in a new session of Mozilla Firefox browser. I want to be able to disable a toolbar and have it remain disabled until I choose to enable it, even when I open a new session.

Re: How to disable a toolbar?

Toolbars that have content that gets refreshed may show up automatically in some cases and you may not be able to hide them permanently.

You can also check for problems with the localstore.rdf file.

Cor-el when you say "content", what does this mean? is that like a webpage v an action the add-one is doing?

Cor-el - is there a way i can put all these add-ons, in this new toolbar, off to the side on the navigation bar, just like the extra bookmarks do it?

Extra dropdown for my new toolbar -- is this possible (mimicing the bookmark dropdown)? see screenshot.

Cor-el, other 2 related questions


one add-on, "Cookies Controller", made their icons on install appear under customise (e.g. they did not put their icons automatically on teh toolbar). so i clicked "customise" toolbar and dragged their icons to the bar at the bottom. I think this bar at bottom (is called status bar)

"QUESTION"" what determines if an icon can go onto navigation bar or status bar? do i have full control or is it in the FFOX engine somewhere?


the option "Customise toolbar" is very hard for me to activate. QUESTION - is it possible to add to a button?.

I have the new customise button add-on, but i did not know what to put in the button to call the "customise toolbar" action you get to by right clicking on grey space in the navigation bar or status bar

thankyou again
