Is there any way to remove the toolbars by editing userChrome.css ?
This should work:

#task-toolbox {
  display: none;

Thanks! Just figured out the same thing using DOM inspector.

unremovable toolbar

Is this the toolbar this bug is referring to? If yes, color me interested.
In the meanwhile, the CSS above works to achieve the goal. I'm applying it with Stylish.

patch - v1

I've tried different ways to fix this, but this one seems the simplest (if everything is right).

IMHO it would also need to disable the context menu (on toolbars and menubar) when the "Customize toolbar" window is open, but I see that the same feature doesn't exist on Thunderbird.
This patch also fixes bug 866370.

patch - v2

I've just realize that there also is a menu item for the toolbars in the AppMenu (but it is under the "Options..." item instead of "View").
This patch sorts out the menu items in that menu too.

Did you test that it works or at least doesn't break in SeaMonkey?

I've installed SeaMonkey and tested the patch which doesn't work because SeaMonkey has a different structure (e.g. the mail toolbar stays on the window together with the calendar or the task toolbars, the function that adds the items in the menu is different, etc.), but it doesn't break any element in SeaMonkey so I think we can push it in the repository.
If it's fine, I leave this bug open and I will try to make another patch for SeaMonkey.

> +  <menupopup id="toolbar-context-menu"
> +             onpopupshowing="onToolbarsPopupShowingWithMode(event);"/>

This clobbers the SeaMonkey onpopupshowing attribute:

  <menupopup id="toolbar-context-menu"

> +function onToolbarsPopupShowingWithMode(aEvent, aInsertPoint) {
> +    let toolbox = [gCurrentMode + "-toolbox"];
> +    if (gCurrentMode != "mail") {
> +        toolbox.push("navigation-toolbox");
> +    }
> +    onViewToolbarsPopupShowing(aEvent, toolbox, aInsertPoint);

This almost works. Unfortunately the SeaMonkey onViewToolbarsPopupShowing() follows the Firefox version which puts aInsertPoint as the second parameter.

Wouldn't it have been simpler if you just added the Lightning toolbars to the externalToolbars property of the mail toolbox?
