I have popup that I want to use some of my firefox tools on.

The popup only has a status bar on it right now. How can I get all the normal firefox toolbars (like forward, back, home, address bar, etc.)?

How are you creating this popup? Through code? This might be more suitable for Stack Overflow... – heavyd Apr 21 '10 at 18:48

You can force all popups to open in tabs instead of new windows. New tabs can't get rid of toolbars etc. See my answer to "How do I make ALL pop ups in FF open in a new tab rather then a new window?".

I don't think it is possible in a pop-up to show all toolbars. Best thing to do is right click the pop-up content, click "View Page Info".

In the window that pops up select and copy the "Address" and paste it in a normal tab. From there you should be able to do your thing.

Configuration Mania has options to force popups to show things like scrollbars, toolbars, menu bars, etc. It's universal, but I much prefer having my popups have those things anyway.
