Description

13 years ago
I've disabled the status bar recently.  I think things now look much cleaner and more attractive.  With the security status (padlock icon) in the address bar, the only thing I miss is knowing where a link will lead.

It would be great if Firefox would show the href attribute of a link in a tooltip that appears after hovering over a link for a certain time (i.e. after a short delay).

Like this bookmarklet does (found somewhere on the internet):

javascript:(function(i,v){with(document){for(i=0;i<links.length;++i){with(links[i]){v=[];if(title){v.push('Title:%C2%A0'+title)}if(href){v.push('Address:%C2%A0'+href)}if(target){v.push('Target:%C2%A0'+target)}title=v.join('\n')}}}})()
