These menu options have no effect. This occurs in popups launched using script such as: open('http://www.google.com/', '_blank', 'menubar'); Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load testcase URL 2. Launch popup 3. In the popup go to View -> Toolbars -> Navigation Toolbar 4. Repeat step 3 Actual Results: No effect Expected Results: This option should show and/or hide the navigation toolbar. If this isn't possible, the options to show or hide toolbars should be disabled (greyed).
The same is true for the View -> Sidebar submenu.
Summary: Options in View -> Toolbars have no effect in toolbarless window → Options in View -> Toolbars and View -> Sidebar have no effect in toolbarless window
Couldn't find a dupe. Confirming.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Also confirming. I find this particularly anoying, as it is *when* I have a toolbarless window, that I *want* access to my bookmarks [CTRL]+B, but am denied. :-( Steve

I don't have any problems with showing the toolbars when following the steps in comment #0. But that could have to do with some of the dom.disable_window_open_feature.* config options I've changed. But I do get the following error in the console when openeing a toolbar: Error: document.getElementById(toolbarMenuElt.childNodes[i].getAttribute("observes")) has no properties Source File: chrome://browser/content/browser.js Line: 2053 Also when trying the sidebar it doesn't open and I get this in the console: Error: this.docShell has no properties Source File: chrome://global/content/bindings/browser.xml Line: 0 So I don't think they're quite the same bug but hopefully they can get fixed together here.

5 years later and no progress? There's still a JS error being thrown when trying to open the History sidebar in a popup window. This is also responsible for bug reports in third-party addons that use sidebars, for example: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BON-422
