Status bar now shows the link target. Now Alt+Tab to any other application, then Alt+Tab back to Firefox don't toching your mouse. Status bar now shows "Done" again if you haven't clicked any links on this page, or shows a link you've clicked before if you did - all this even though your mouse pointer still points over (another) link. Of course, as soon as you move a mouse, status bar state become correct again. == Sorry if this was already reported and\or isn't considered a bug.

I see your problem on XP On Windows Vista instead the target is still in the statusbar but if i alt tab to another windows, move the mouse and go back, then the statusbar still shows the link target even if i'm no more on the link (and does not go away until i move on another link) The same on current Trunk, i've not found a dupe, confirming
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Summary: strange behaviour of the status bar after window change → statusbar link target is wrong after changing windows with alt-tab
