Disabing a toobar in Navigator

My question is regarding your post about disabling a toolbar in Navigator. Did you mean that it's possible in an existing window or the new one? If existing - do you have the JavaScript code that does it?
If seems based on my research on the Microsoft Developer Network ( ) and my personal testing that the feature is not implemented in Internet Explorer for the current window.

In Netscape/Mozilla, since JavaScript 1.2 you can use the following code to disable the location bar in an existing window:

 window.locationbar.visible=true; As you most likely know, you can do this in most any browser when opening a new window in JavaScript as shown below:', '', 'toolbar=no');
