Actual results:

Then Firefox displays 2 URL address tooltip.

Firefox 58.0 uses the status bar consistently when pointing at bookmarks and historic items in the sidebar. 

I like the use of the status bar; appearance is instantaneous. 

Less consistently, Firefox 58.0 makes _no_ use of the status bar when pointing at: 

- bookmarks in the library menu
- historic items in the library menu
- historic items in the history menu.
Severity: normal → S3
