    I used to be able to mouseover a link and it would show you the target URL in the status bar. Now this cannot be done. How do I fix it? I need to know where links go before I click on them.

    edit - The Add-On Status-4-Evar will let it appear on the right side of the URL bar or in a popup at the bottom. At least that's a fix.

    Just updated to firefox 12 and I can still see status bar on the left corner of my browser after holding mouse over any link for 2 seconds.

    Same here. Maybe there is a setting disabled somewhere.

    I did not know that. Thank you! [​IMG]

    I must've turned it off accidentally.
