i want to remove sidebar from nautilus, but not all the time , what i want is to remove it on a certain instance .

the problem is when i remove it on an instance, it's removed from all other instances.

in other words : i want to customize nautilus's sidebar for a specific folders.

how to do that ?

There are some specifics that can be set in Nautilus. Use Alt+F2 and run gconf-editor go to > apps > nautilus > preferences > (you can edit a lot of things here)
When done. Exit and restart nautilus by nautilus -q the changes will then take effect.
