Firefox has a tab bar context menu item "Move to New Window". This will create a new window with all the default window configuration, incl. vertical tabs, location bar and whatever else one might have.

I occasionally want to move a web application from regular tab into an "app"-like window, i.e. all the features removed. Also known as a popup.

Sounds like an addon, but I'm not finding any so far.

Any other tricks or suggestions in the meanwhile?

Found this but only for video.

Building an answer here. This probably goes into the territory of pinned tabs. Couple of addons out there, that take a shot at this, but none of them want to hide the tabbar.

EDIT kind of sucks that Chrome application shortcuts are the closest thing to a solution. If only links could still be opened in Firefox..
