Lot of users started noticing in Firefox 4 Beta 7 that there is no status bar, for your kind information there’ll be no status bar in Firefox 4 final version also. Hang on, after getting questions from readers I decided to write brief post on why Mozilla was decided to remove the status bar in Firefox 4 and how to get status bar back in Firefox 4 .
Reason for ditching status bar in Firefox 4
Mozilla wants Firefox 4 UI to be less cluttered with controls similar to Google Chrome and they thought status bar is not necessary. Mozilla moved much needed status bar functionality to top in Firefox and removed some unnecessary status bar features.
As usual you look at bottom for status bar when you hover mouse cursor on a link to see where URL goes, now up your head this URL destination will appear in address bar.
To get status bar back in Firefox 4 you can use Status-4-Evar extension.
You’ll find this extension as must have for Firefox 4. Remember you need to enable add-on bar for Status-4-Evar to show status bar features .
