Hide Navigation Bar for Mozilla Firefox

This extension enables you to hide the navigation bar through a toggle button. Currently the toggle button is the F2 key. You can change the key in the extensions options, as well as configure whether you want the Navigation Bar to be displayed on an initial Firefox launch. Also allows you to enable an Auto-Hide mode if you wish to use that instead.

This extension is based off the work completed in the Hide Menu Bar extension.

Download Hide Navigation Bar 1.42! - 14 KB - Updated March 27, 2017

Currently, Mozilla's Addons site is the only location Hide Navigation Bar is available.  However, immediately after a new release, the newest version is only available from Hide Navigation Bar's all versions page on Mozilla's Add-ons website.  After Mozilla reviews the version, it is made public on Hid Navigation Bar's public listing on Mozilla's Add-ons website. Click the download link above to go there, and retreive the latest version.


I picked up a few of the comments from users at Mozilla's Add-ons website.
"Jay, as always, does very well."

"Lets me see more website and less Firefox which is nice. "

"I like the additional space this addon gives me, since the skin I use uses a lot of space ;) "


PayPal - Donate! Obviously donations are not required for use, but are always welcome.  I do spend a good amount of my time working on these projects.  Time spent away from my family and friends.  Donations made with the button to the right are secured by PayPal and will help to justify the time I spend working on these projects rather than with people in my life.
