Hide Vimperator bottom bar

Vimperator bottom bar

Copy the following snippet in your Vimperator configuration file (mine is ~/.vimperatorrc):

map <silent> <C-F8> :js toggle_bottombar()<CR>

:js << EOF
function toggle_bottombar() {
  var bb = document.getElementById('liberator-bottombar');
  if (!bb)
    return; = ( == '') ? '0px' : ''; = ( == '') ? '' : 'hidden';

Restart Firefox, then type ctrl+F8 to hide/show the bottom bar. As the author warns, you must first make the bar visible in order to execute commands.

This is useful to me when watching a video in fullscreen because the bar is always on top.
