How to Auto Hide Bookmarks Toolbar & Re-appear When Needed – to Save Vertical Space in Firefox ?

by Jawwad in Firefox, Internet, Tips&Tricks | 0 comments

One of the issue that many people are facing that have moved to wide-screen LCDs/displays is related to the less vertical space available on the display. This is a consequence of having wide screen displays. This limitation is particularly evident when working in an application with a lot of toolbars for example in Firefox (assuming that you are a power user and have enabled the bookmarks bar in addition to the tab bar). This kind of GUI setup in the Firefox not leaves much free vertical space. If you are in this kind of situation then you can reclaim some of this precious space by enabling the auto-hiding feature for the bookmarks bar.

So, basically we will not completely disable the bookmarks bar but it will be hidden when not needed. As soon as you move your mouse above to the place where bookmark bar used to be it will magically appear! This is exactly the functionality provided by a very simple extension called Bookmark Autohider for the Firefox. I know there are some quick hacks available for the css that allows to achieve this without installing an extension but this is much simpler way for most of the Firefox users.

In case you are wondering this extension works with Firefox 4.0. You can get the Bookmark Autohider from here.
