How do I disable the link address popup at bottom of the page?

Posted

I do not want links to appear in the small popup window at the bottom of the page. I was using the workaround here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/822487#answer-184316 but since Firefox 25.0 that annoying popup has appeared again.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

statuspanel { display:none!important; }

You can also choose to hide only specific messages and still have some displayed.
Some selectors:

statuspanel[type="overLink"] .statuspanel-label
statuspanel[type="status"] .statuspanel-label[value^="Looking"]
statuspanel[type="status"] .statuspanel-label[value^="Connect"]
statuspanel[type="status"] .statuspanel-label[value^="Waiting"]
statuspanel[type="status"] .statuspanel-label[value^="Transfer"]

Even better solution may be to use Status-4-Evar addon, that moves status label to the free space on the Add-Ons Bar. So the label doesn't get in the way (which was not convenient, e.g., overlapping the last string in online editor text field - I couldn't see what I typed). With Status-4-Evar, statuspanel goes exactly to the right place. https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/status-4-evar/
