It would be nice to be able to set the status bar off but make it appear when we hover link. It's the only time that i use the status bar, to see the URL of the link i'm hovering on. I think that many people of the community do that too. So the 3 options for the status bar should be on, off, Appear when hovering link only.

Thats not truly a bug but a great improvement i think !

Reproducible: Always

In Firefox 4.0, links will not be shown in the statusbar anymore, they got moved to the locationbar.

The status bar behavior has matched this request for several releases now.  Closing.
