    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <title>Various DOM Tests</title>
    
    <script>
    // changing bar states on the existing window
    netscape.security.PrivilegeManager.enablePrivilege("UniversalBrowserWrite");
    window.statusbar.visible=!window.statusbar.visible;
    </script>
    
    </head>

Also be aware that dynamically updating the visibilty of the various toolbars can change the size of the window rather dramatically, and may affect the layout of your page.
