    Default [SOLVED] Launching Zimbra in a Browser Window with No Toolbars or Navigation Bar?

    I am finally migrating completely away from Thunderbird (using IMAP) to Zimbra Web Client 4.x. However, one of the annoyances I have is that the web app feels less like an app and more like a web page when the browser window it's in has the navigation bar, bookmarks toolbar, etc... I use Firefox on Linux as my client and at first I thought maybe I could launch Firefox with command line options to suppress the toolbars so that only Zimbra's application showed up (kind of like pop-up ads do from time to time). But there were no options to do that.

    Then a web developer friend of mine sent me a snippet of Javascript code which does what I want, with one glaring problem. It opens the Zimbra login screen in a browser window with no toolbars, so Zimbra really looks more like an application. However, since it's a pop-up Javascript script, there is a blank parent window that has to open in the running browser. Quite annoying...

    Here's the script I'm using for now in a file called "zimbra.html" that is stored locally on my workstation:

    Code:
    <SCRIPT type="text/javascript" > window.open('http://zimbra.mydomain.com', 'Zimbra', config='height=768,width=1024,status=yes') </SCRIPT>
    That led me to wonder, is there a way to formulate the Zimbra URL itself to open a new window with no toolbars? Any ideas?

    Default

    In the past I've used a bookmark containing the following data:

    javascript:void(window.open('https://zimbra.domain.tld:443/zimbra/mail','zimbraWindow','copyhistory=no,directories=n o,location=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes, status=no',false))

    Easy way may be to just bookmark Zimbra as normal, and then edit the bookmark and replace the URI with the data above, make sure you edit in your own server name though.

    Default Use Chrome shortcuts!

    In Chrome, you can open the menu, go to Tools > Add Application Shortcuts.
    It creates shortcuts with the Zimbra icon that open Chrome with no menus or toolbars.
