Hiding the navigation bar like in fullscreen mode

When entering fullscreen mode (e.g. by pressing F11), the navigation bar, with tabs, address bar, etc. can be hidden by removing focus from it.
I was wondering if there was a way to do something like that without entering fullscreen mode.
Maybe a preference I missed, or an extension.
My system setup is a bit special (Pale Moon is a standard build though!), and being able to hide just the navigation toolbar would further improve it for what I need.
Thank you.

Write an extension that collapses the browser toolbox.. IF you aren't that concerned about the fancy sliding animation you could just add a splitter with a grippy to the UI via an overlay and then it should be one touch..

Doing the animation or a hover hotspot would be far more complicated..

So it can be done.
I don't really care about animations as long as I can hide it, so I'll give it a try with the simplest solution.
Thanks!
