    Goto:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profile_name\chrome

    folder, and rename the existing file "userChrome_example.css" (or something like that) to "userChrome.css".

    Now open the file in notepad and paste the following code in the file:

    Code:
    menu[label="Bookmarks"] {
       display: none !important;
    }
    Now open firefox to see the changes!
    To again show the Bookmarks menu, simply remove the lines from the file! :)

    I think Champs want to hide all his bookmarks in firefox. NOT hide Bookmarks toolbar.
    BTW I also would like to hide my bookmarks if possible easily.

    Lemme do it more easy!
    I'm uploading the file, u hv to just first unzip the file and then copy-paste the file into following directory:

    C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\User_Profile_Name\chrome

    PS: Here, User_Name is currently logged in User name.
    User_Profile_Name should be something like this: zsm78lyh.default.
    C:\ is the system drive, where u hv installed windows, change it to ur system drive!
