Empty default toolbars do not disappear automatically


(Toolkit :: Toolbars and Toolbar Customization, defect, minor)

Not set

Using build 20021020 on w2k.

When you empty a toolbar in the customization window, then click "Done", the
empty toolbar disappears automatically.

When you do the same thing with the navigation bar (for example by putting your
nav buttons and the URIbar right to the menu bar), the Navigation Bar is still
there, and to remove it, you have to uncheck it in the View > Toolbars menu.
Same for the bookmarks toolbar.
See URL for a screenshot.
Auto-hide-when-empty for the standard toolbars would be good; possibly
auto-removal instead, if the "default toolbars" code is modified to recreate
them as well as their content.
Verified with todays build on Linux. Setting severity to minor and marking as NEW.

anyone still see this?
Yep, I'm still seeing this on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4) Gecko/20090423 Firefox/3.5b4 ID:20090423191946
The question is do we want to hide default toolbars or not delete empty non-default toolbars when hitting ok while no item is placed on. Looks like a question for the UX team.

Yes, as long as they come back when you customize and they are turned on.

An empty toolbar isn't very useful in general. :)

Please, not without an option to keep existing behavior - it is easy to uncheck unwanted toolbars in the view/toolbars menu. 
see bug 519698 "Add New Toolbar" doesn't work if you don't put something in the new toolbar
