    I've only just started using Firefox.

    This is from the Firefox Info ..
    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

    function openNewSMWindow(url, wid, het) {,"",wid + ',' + het +',scrollbars=no,scrolling=no,resizable=no,status=no,toolbar=no,location=no');

    I've been using the above script to open windows with Safari and I get a clean window with only a drag bar at the top
    and no other window ornaments.

    With Firefox I get a status bar at the bottom and can't get rid of it.

    How do I turn off the status bar using j.s.?

    Go to "Edit -> Preferences -> Web Features" or "Tools -> Options -> Web Features"
    (OS dependent), and next to "Enable Javascript" click the "Advanced" button.
    A pop-up settings box labelled "Advanced Javascript Options" will appear.

    In the pop-up settings box labelled "Advanced Javascript Options"
    you do not have a check-mark in the box

    ---Allow scripts to---
    [ ] Hide the status bar
    Put a check mark in the above setting.

  3. That's right, Brian!

    You can't just hide something in Firefox unless the person viewing the
    site allows you to.

    Firefox puts the user back in charge of things... There are other
    options in the same place too, check it out!
