This means that the user can create live bookmarks, change pop-up settings, and switch stylesheets (bug 258800) using the statusbar icons - which really have nothing to do with printing and, thus, is confusing to the user. The only reason currently for showing the statusbar might be to show that the page is secure, but the user should be aware of this before even printing. For what it is worth, IE hides the statusbar. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Visit a site that triggers a statusbar icon (like http://www.mozilla.org/). 2.Select Print Preview. Actual Results: You can still access the statusbar icon (in the case of mozilla.org you can set a live bookmark). Expected Results: Hidden access to any site triggered statusbar icons. Another acceptable option would be to follow the approach in bug 258800 and leave the statusbar visible, but collapse all of the icons. This would also allow for the security icon to remain visible, if desired. This is also similar to bug 257178.
unlikely that there is time to get this into 1.0 -- renominate if a patch appears.

Created attachment 160504 [details] [diff] [review] patch This patch will hide the status-bar when you go into print preview. I have tested it by manually applying the patch and have not run into to problems. I don't have much programming experience (at least not in programming for applications), so this diff was blatantly stolen from bug 258800.
Renominating as there is now a patch. On a side note, how do I make a review request?
Flags: blocking-aviary1.0- → blocking-aviary1.0?
Also, if this patch gets checked in, you might want to update the comments: // (*) sidebar + // (*) statusbar // (*) find bar
So why don't you update your patch with the added comment? You should call it "statusbar", not "statusbars". For bonus points, create your patch with "cvs diff -up8". '8' is for additional context, and 'p' shows the function your changes are in. To make a review request, click on Edit next to the patch, set "review" to "?" and add the requestee in the textbox. The list of Firefox reviewers is here: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/review.html Choose on of the first three, or email@example.com.
Created attachment 160537 [details] [diff] [review] updated patch Thanks Steffen for your help - I think I have covered all of your concerns with this patch. I have never used CVS before (or a diff for that matter), so this is a bit of a learning experience for me. If I have made any more mistakes, please let me know.
