Lost wi-fi sig status on menu bar ONLY when FF is running, several updates back, so update not a solution. Shows whenever FF not invoked. Search = no answer.
Quite some time back this started and have finally grown tired of it so decided there must be an answer somewhere, but of course if there is I can't find it and the only thing close are outdated archived threads that don't resolve the issue nor allow reopening them, suggesting a new thread be initialed, soooo... here tis.
TSIA... no lil animated 'radar' looking thingie ONLY WHEN FF is running. When it's not the icon is extant.
Started several updates ago of both FF and OS X, so don't buy into that being an issue and I have NO intention of any more updates for various reasons that far out weigh the minor nuisance of no WiFi status icon.
FF 29.0.1 Mac OS X 10.9.2
