    Firefox 4 - No More Status Bar

    Status Bar is completely removed in Firefox 4, instead, an add-on bar will replace it.

    yeah. Its not like there's a huge loss if they've got an addon bar.
    I had to do it.

    Aye, I'm using the Beta as it seems a lot faster and doesn't freeze, they be scunners at Mozilla for calling FF3 'stable'. I like the status bar though, it would be nice to get it back. I've made the interface 100% resemble FF3 (except the active tab doesn't light up, for some stupid reason.), but does anyone know where this addon be?

    I've never really understood the point of the status bar. It just needlessly takes up room. One of the first things I do whenever I install a browser is get rid of it.

    I still maintain the point that designing a monolithic kernel in 1991 is a fundamental error. Be thankful you are not my student. You would not get a high grade for such a design (Andrew Tanenbaum to Linus Torvalds)

    I constantly use the status bar... you can see the URL of a link just by hovering over it. This is frequently useful to me.

    There are addons to allow you to see the content or title of an outgoing link. if you'd like me to name some, ask lovinglinux.

    It actually shows the link direction in the URL bar in the Beta, but it makes everything look a bit cluttered.
