This is a read only property containing a reference to a Bar object whose visible property contains a Boolean value that controls the visibility of the screen furniture represented by the object.

In this case, it is supposed to control the visibility of the location bar.

The example shows how this can be done in a secure way that requires privilege to be granted and in a non-secure way that does not.

Warnings:

Example code:

   // Request necessary privileges
   netscape.security.PrivilegeManager.enablePrivilege("UniversalBrowserWrite");
   // Hide location bar
   window.locationbar.visible = false;
   // There is another way that works without requesting privilege
   window.open('', '_top', 'location=0');
