Dialog box should offer to hide Bookmarks Toolbar when empty
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 (ax) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 (ax) I have seen users of Firefox with empty Bookmarks Toolbars, they don't realise it is possible to hide the toolbar, or don't wish to poke around looking for an option to get rid of it. A nice feature would be that if all the items from the bookmarks toolbar are deleted a dialogue box could offer the user the option of hiding the bookmarks toolbar. Reproducible: Always
What's the benefit of this? An empty toolbar doesn't look any different than an empty bookmarks toolbar, does it? This would wallpaper over bug 247116, but that should be fixed separately.
>What's the benefit of this? I think you've got to look it at the other way and ask, what's the benefit of an empty Bookmarks Toolbar? I would argue not much at all, the space is better used showing a webpage. If the user has deleted all the items on it, it's a clear sign they likely want it to disappear.
the toolbar is collapsed by default, if a user is able to uncollapse it, he's likely aware it can be collapsed. Not worth to fix this.
