Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021119 Phoenix/0.4

It would be nice to have an option for a collapsible statusbar that's only shown
during page load, while hovering a link or when the web page author can't leave
 her/his fingers off the window.status property (in other words: if it shows
something more or less useful), but vanishing when it only shows "Done.".

Reproducible: Always

Setting status to new.
A basic workaround is to add the following lines in your userChrome.css:

#status-bar {
max-height: 1px !important;
}

#status-bar:hover {
max-height: 25px !important;
}

That way, you'll see the statusbar only when you want to see it.

This is a workaround to hide the statusbar without completely disabling it, but
it's not what I had in mind. It should basically do the same as a whole as what
the statusbarpanel with the progressmeter in it already does, which has its
collapsed-attribute set to true. I'm changing the summary to better reflect this.

So the status bar would appear and disappear whenever the cursor passes over a link?

Yes, with a delay of maybe 2000 ms, so that quickly moving the mouse over a
number of links doesn't cause flicker. In addition to the bug description: it
should also completely stay up while page and security report icons are shown.

Not in the plans.

VERIFYING obvious WONTFIX bugs.  Filter on firebirdWontFix to filter these bugs.
 I skipped a few that I'm unsure about from their summary and will manually go
through them.
