What are you using as far as downloading? Ohh I see it

Download Status Bar 9.2.5
Flash Video Downloader

I found that after Firefox v29, a LOT of my settings and
add-ons were changed / reset. Try this; Start Firefox in Safe Mode
While you are in safe mode;
Firefox Options > Advanced > General.
Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.
Then check ALL of your settings. Browser and add-ons. Then restart.

Why doesn't Mozilla support answer the question the user was really trying to ask. WHAT DID YOU DO WITH THE STATUS BAR?

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page (There’s a lot of good stuff here)
