Hide menubar in Mozilla plus URL location?

Hello,

I am coding a web application to be used on an internal Intranet.

I have already coded a menubar for the application using DHTML.

I want to get rid of the standard menubar in Mozilla to:

a) Stop people getting confused with 2 menubars
b) Free up a bit of more screen space
How do I hide the menubar? I can do it in pop up windows, but not with
the main window.

Also, can I hide the location URL bar? Again, can do it in pop up
windows but not in the main browser window.

Cheers

2 menubars will confuse them?
b) Free up a bit of more screen space
You could train them to run Mozilla in full-screen mode (press f11).
That gets rid of the menu bar, but alas, not the tool bar. So there
will still be that confusing back button, etc.
How do I hide the menubar?
Mozilla is built with the ability to defeat attempts to change its
chrome. It can defeat attempts to resize it, open unrequested
windows, change the status-bar text, hide menus, etc. AFAIK, you
would have to simply train users to view the intranet application
pages exactly as you want them to.
Also, can I hide the location URL bar?


I can find no way to do that in Mozilla.

Why don't you get rid of _your_ menubar them, as you think adding it
causes confusion in the browser default settings? (Or clearly
differentiate between your bar, and the browser bar.)

Try adding this:

menubar, toolbar {
display: none;
}

- to the file "userChrome.css " in your Mozilla Firebird profiles directory
[on Windows to be found somewhere in the documents and settings folder].
This will prevent you from starting an ordinary instance of the browser; if
you really intend to pursue such disadviceable pleasures you should
consider building a kioskbird <url:http://tln.lib.mi.us/
~amutch/pro/phoenix/kiosk.htm> or a standalone XUL application to host the
intranet in an iframe <url:http://www.xulplanet.c om/tutorials/xulapp/>

Visual differentiation between chrome and content could do the trick.

Right you are. That was too simple. Thus, the user can hide all but
the menu bar, and even the menu bar can be collapsed. It's a matter
of training the users (company employees) to use their browsers in a
certain way.
