It persists to other tabs in the same window too.

Summary: Tooltips of status does not disappear after the loading completion of the page → DOM status text persists when switching tabs
Not really a regression, at least not a recent one. I see this bug using the 2010-09-21 nightly (one of the last ones with the status bar) with dom.disable_window_status_change set to false. I don't know why bug 574688 changed the default value of that pref. Maybe we should revert that change.
