I'm currently awaiting the arrival of a new pc and in the meantime am having to work on a small laptop screen.

I need to have two browser windows open at the same time, tiled horizontally. Is there a shortcut to open a new window without all the usual fluff that you get?

When you say no javascript I assume you mean you're asking from a Firefox user perspective, not as a coder? If you're not opposed to javascript in principle you could always type this into your address bar:

javascript:window.open("http://www.google.com", "_blank", "resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no")

This will open a url in a new window, without toolbars. You will have to uncheck Block popup windows in Tools > Options > Content for this to work though. Also, Firefox from version 3 forces the address and status bars to be shown on all windows, you can disable this in about:config (more information).

You can turn some of them off in the 'view' menu under 'toolbars'.

Yes but I'm lazy and want it to happen with one shortcut if possible. :) plus this won't get rid of the main menu bar. – adolf garlic Jan 4 '10 at 14:34
