The Firefox window Object

The Firefox window object is used to create all windows in Firefox. They can be manipulated as a whole (such as applying a theme) or individually (adding a menu item or button to one window), as the developer desires.

Take a look at Firefox's main window. It has a title bar, a menu bar, toolbars, scrollbars, status bars, and other features. When a window is created, its feature can be specified. Features are classified into three broad categories:

  • Position and size Enable the specification of a window's size and position.

  • Toolbars and chrome Control which features (as mentioned previously) the window will have.

  • Window functionalities Used to describe how the window will behave. These include resizing, scrollbars, and other similar functions.

A good reference on the windows object is at http://www.mozilla.org/docs/dom/domref/dom_window_ref.html.
