tomshardware.co.uk/faq/id-2082951/… describes how to do this, this may free up some disk space at the expense of not being able to hibernate.

As in "not an external drive", I don't think you can move these hidden system files to an external USB drive for example. superuser.com/questions/277834/…

Okay, you might want to update your question to include this information. I suspect you'll have both HIBERFIL.SYS and PAGEFILE.SYS files in the root of your C: drive taking up the missing space, these files could only be moved to another "fixed" drive.

Both the paging file and hibernation file may be taking up a lot of space on your hard drive without being visible, it doesn't sound like you have another hard drive otherwise I'd recommend you move these to a different disk.

comment back and forward buttons in Firefox
Just a guess, are they context sensitive? If there is nowhere to back / forward to / from then they are hidden, they aren't specific buttons you can add or remove and appear or disappear from beside the navigation bar as needed?
