Firefox: Using Address Bar Searches? Ditch The Search Bar

A few posts ago, I wrote about how to supercharge your Firefox address bar to search different websites. Now that you know how to do that, why not ditch your Search Bar, and free up some room?

Doing it is simple. Just right click on your main toolbar, and click "Customize Toolbars." You then get the palette showing all of Firefox's toolbar properties. Now just go and drag the search bar from your browser into that palette, and your search bar goes poof! In fact, while you're at it, go and get rid of any other toolbar elements you don't really need to use.

Now that you've gone and done that, why not merge your Stop and Reload buttons, and condense your Menu items into one Compact Menu? Once you've gone and done that, you might have a one-row, super sparse toolbar like I have:

Stay tuned to see how I then added that vertical toolbar on the side.
