I recently noticed that Bug 88541 (Show URI in status bar onmouseover of Back/Forward menu items) got fixed and I wondered why we still haven't that feature for items in the "Recently Closed Tabs" and "Recently Closed Windows" list. I always miss that when I want to undo a closed tab.
An indication of how many History items each entry has would also be awesome, like having a second level list opening with all the History items of that Closed Tab (but that may be something for another feature request).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a few tabs with some sites (e.g. Support forum index pages 1-5) that have the same title
2. Close them all with a middle-click on that tab in some random order.
3. Try to find a particular tab with the wanted URL (forum index page) in the Recently Closed tabs list. All have the same title, so all I can do is to restore them until I find the wanted tab.
Actual Results:  
If I hover an entry in the Recently Closed Tabs list then I see no URL on the Status Bar to help me find the one I'm looking for.

Expected Results:  
The Status Bar should show the URL of the item that I hover in the Recently Closed Tabs list, so I can identify the one I'm looking for quickly.

Over to menus, although arguably this belongs in either History or Session Store. Fix should be relatively easy...
