if you're talking about doing that on the parent window, it can't be done.

That's an option the user selects.

If you want to do it on a popup window just make sure the properties are correct...

window.open('Page_File', 'name', 'status=no');

In Mozilla at least, you can change the various bars in the window:

document.defaultView.statusbar.visible = false

document.defaultView.toolbar.visible = false;


This is one thing I'm not keen on being enabled by default, but not enough people know about it to be a problem. And since there are so little users of Mozilla, the people who want something similar usually don't bother. It would probably work in NS6/NS7 though.
