As many CGI pages, etc., have the same title, it would be useful if the status bar, or a tooltip, showed what the URL was, to aide in differentiating between different pages. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to www.mozzila.org 2. Go to www.mozilla.org/start 3. Go to www.mozilla.org/releases 4. Select and hold the 'back' button so it displays the list of previous pages. 5. Move mouse over previous pages 6. No indicator of URL in status bar or tool tips Actual Results: No indicator of URL in status bar or tool tips Expected Results: Indicate of URL in status bar or tool tips

The URL should be shown in the status bar, as it is with the history menu.
Created attachment 365403 [details] [diff] [review] patch v2 Same changes as before, reworked into XBL. I know toolkit/..../popup.xml is not the right place to put the handlers, can someone suggest a better place?
Attachment #364638 - Attachment is obsolete: true
You can add XBL bindings to browser/base/content Dao, any thoughts? should we unify the various binding files we use in the main window and append this there?
urlbarBindings.xml seems like a good start for a general-purpose browser bindings file, since it already contains more than just urlbar bindings. It would need a new name, and browser-tabPreviews.xml could potentially be merged into it.
