Maybe you can use some css for that (Testing my css ability that im just learning).

for other users looking to do this, here ya go.

once as you install all toolbars will be removed, im not liable to damages to your firefox profile

Hiding the Navigation Toolbar won't really help because you can always use the Ctrl+L keyboard shortcut to bring up a location bar replacement if the real location bar is hidden (e.g. no Navigation Toolbar visible) or not present on one of the visible toolbars (i.e. moved to the toolbar palette).

What shows in your screenshot if the alert that show a link on hover and other status messages while the page is loading.

@namespace url(""); /* only needed once */

#statusbar-display { display: none !important; }

So my css will allow Ctrl + L and show the urlbar?

You can try that out yourself. That is always the best way to find out how it works.

Nope it doesnt block it and have no idea what to do.

You can hide that pop-up as well with code in userChrome.css:

#urlbar-container, #openLocation { display:none!important; }

okay, thank you, i will add that later this evening

I had added it to the user style and it works fine, no Ctrl + L box.

BION I don't have a blasted address bar on the newest Firefox 23! Where is it and how do I bring it up? Thanks I hope- Jack/keimanzero

Hi keimanzero

Note that this thread is about hiding the location bar.
You have a different problem and aren't seeing the location bar, so best would have been to create a new thread.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in full screen mode (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: Command+Shift+F).

If you are in full screen mode then hover the mouse to the top of the screen to make the Navigation Toolbar and Tab bar appear. Click the Maximize button (top right corner of the Navigation Toolbar) to leave full screen mode or right-click empty space on a toolbar and choose "Exit Full Screen Mode" or press the F11 key.

Make sure that toolbars like the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible.

  • Firefox menu button > Options
  • View > Toolbars (press F10 to display the menu bar)
  • Right-click empty toolbar area

Use Toolbar Layout (Customize) to open the Customize window and set which toolbar items to display.

  • if missing items are in the toolbar palette then drag them back from the Customize window on the toolbar
  • if you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the toolbar palette then click the "Restore Default Set" button to restore the default toolbar setup

You can check for problems caused by a corrupted localstore.rdf file if the above didn't help.

Thanks a lot cor-el, Restore Default Set brought back the address bar! I am not too familiar with all the Firefox stuff yet. I'd added Speed Dial addon and I thought that ahd mucked up the address bar. Sorry for posting in the wrong thread. See ya later- Jack
