Hide navigation bar already exists (if you mean the Location bar), so
that is off.

Opening all folders in new windows and track window positions have to be
either on or off together, as you can't track window positions if there
are no new windows being created.  This is the key difference between
spatial and browser mode.

This leaves showing the folder tree in the status bar. Browser mode has
an "Up" toolbar button which is very similar to the path dropdown, so
not a lot would be gained by adding the dropdown too.
