Unsure what has triggered this problem but did not notice it before updating to the latest FF2.0RC1.  Mousing over any URL no longer displays the link destination in the Status bar - it just shows 'Done' or if it's loading a page it will show the proper Loading and associated bar and URL.  Tried restarting firefox and problem still occurs.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Updated from last beta of Firefox 2.0 to RC1 via automatic update.
2. Killed firefox.exe process and reopened with restoring tabs (approximately 15 tabs)

Actual Results:  
Works normally except for status bar problem.

Expected Results:  
Display URL destinations in the stauts bar.

Using default theme (the new updated one for RC1).

"Any URL" - not any URL here. When I make a new profile and hover over links in the start page every URL is displayed in the status bar.
The same happens when I hover over bookmarks in the menu.
Bookmarks on the Bookmarks Toolbar and its sub folders however are not displayed in the status bar on mouseover. I assume this is a well-known bug.

WFM.  Resolving as WFM based on this and comment 1, as well as lack of response to comment 2.

Reporter, if you are still seeing this problem with the latest Firefox 3 beta, feel free to re-open this bug and provide any new information you might have.
