On previous versions of Firefox there was a progress bar when you were loading a page. It was in the lower right corner. How can I get it back? It would be very helpful if there was an add on for it for those of us still on dial up.

Try this extension, which allows you to restore many of the features which were lost when the Statusbar was removed fro Firefox 4.0.

Be aware that the loading indication that you see doesn't represent a real indication of what is happening. It just starts increasing till about 50% of the bar is filled and if it takes too long then the steps get smaller (half what is left as available space in the end or stop at all).

There is also the Net tab on the Web Console that can show how long it takes to load content.
