Since the HTML specifications suggests that window.statusbar.visible should return true when the statusbar is visible and false when the statusbar is hidden, it must be an essential parameter of the window object. If it is not feasible , please suggest how to identify if the status bar is hidden or visible in Firefox. In Safari, we are able to determine the existence of statusbar using window.statusbar.visible.
It may be possible to do from a web page in a web browser. It isn't possible in Firefox. If it's really important, you could write an extension that exposes this information to the web page.
> It may be possible to do from a web page in a web browser. Er, read: It may be impossible to get the information about the browser's UI from a web page. It is in fact impossible in Firefox currently.
