I loathe the status bar. I can't stand it flashing in the corner of my fullscreen videos. I don't know why on earth it exists and why there is not a simple menu option to disable it, as I am not very good with even simple code. I have tried as many of the userChrome.css code solutions as I can find and none of them have done anything. I just want it gone, I can't stand it.

Hi, this works in 63.0.1

/*REMOVE STATUS BAR*/
#statuspanel{ display: none !important; }

Don't forget to restart Firefox. If it doesn't work, your userChrome.css file may have a .css.txt extension instead of .css

For reference:

Create a folder named chrome in Firefox Profile (Menu > Help > Troubleshooting info > Profile folder. Or type about:profiles in address bar and press Enter, > Root Directory). Now open Windows Notepad > File > Save as; then in 'File name,' delete *.txt and enter userChrome.css Now in 'Save as type,' change from 'Text documents (*.txt)' to 'All files' > Save, (and save to somewhere like Documents). Next, cut/copy and paste into the Firefox chrome folder). Finally, copy and paste the namespace line below, into that file; click the red X to close, and Save when prompted. You can add any code below the namespace line.

/*DO NOT REMOVE THE NAMESPACE LINE BELOW*/
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper 
/there.is.only.xul");
