Hide toolbar in current window only

Posted on 2003-11-24
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
The last comment I saw on this was back in 2000..  Where it was said that self.toolbar.visible=false; only works in nutscrape.
 Does explorer still not support hiding the toolbar in the current window?  

I don't want to open a new window.  That's not an option.

In Netscape, you can do this:


but the user is prompted for permission
