I am running 3.6.6 for Mac. On Windows versions, a mouseover a hot link shows the linked url in the bottom bar of the window. How can I activate this feature?

Posted

When I put my mouse over a hot link on a web page I do not see the url that the link will take me to. In other words, I have no idea where the hot link will actually take me. In the windows versions of the browser, the destination url is shown at the bottom of the Firefox window. Is it possible to activate this feature on the 3.6.6 Mac version of the browser?
