If you use Google as your homepage but want rid of the blue bar go into your browser options and set that same address [above] as your homepage.

In FF click 'ok' when you've entered the address and then restart the browser.

In Dragon, Chrome, whatever, enter the address then restart the browser. The blue bar should be gone from the Google page.

If you don't want any Google bars, blue or black, then use these as an alternative;

http://gprime.net/googlex/

http://googlex.jayssite.com/

You get the same Google search results with either.
Hi Deya,
What a superb reply and all the tweaks you state work. I use Firefox.

I have solved it also by using ABP Preferences to hide the blue bar.

You simply click Preferences on ABP, then Add Filter (copy/paste) and enter, then click Apply and OK. Don`t forget to enable all the hide elements. To summarise these elements are :-

google.com###gbx2
google.com###gbx1
google.com###gbpr
##DIV#gbprw <========= This is the one that worked for me using Firefox.

Blue bar gone.
