Make Iceweasel Bookmarks Toolbar Auto-hidden

Here is a way to hide your Bookmarks Toolbar until you drag your mouse above it, this will provide you with more space on your screen and a simpler user interface :
Menu > Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory > Open Containing Folder .
In this folder there is a folder called chrome . Edit the file userChrome.css and add these lines :

/* Auto-hide bookmarks toolbar */
#PersonalToolbar {visibility: collapse !important;}
#navigator-toolbox:hover > #PersonalToolbar {visibility: visible !important;}


Restart iceweasel. In case you don't see your bookmarks on the Bookmarks Toolbar check Bookmarks Toolbar in View > Toolbars.

There is an extension as well : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookmark-autohider/
