In fullscreen browsing mode (F11) with the absence of the status bar it becomes difficult to gauge exactly where a link is going to lead to. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open full screen browsing mode
2. Visit some page with links
3. Hover mouse over a link
Actual Results:  
No idea where the link is going to lead to

Expected Results:  
Display link destination as tooltip

Further in full screen browsing mode when mouse is moved towards the top firefox should display the title bar also - currently it is not displaying title bar.

Bug 541656 made it so there is only a tooltip now, no statusbar even in the normal mode.

There is, however, an extension "Status-4-Evar" (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/status-4-evar/) to put the URL back into the now "add-on bar", and it currently has this problem: https://github.com/SparkyBluefang/S4E/issues/9
