How to make link's URL show up in Status Bar like all other browsers?

A crucial piece of security awareness does not work the same in 4.0b7. When hovering over a link, Chrome, Opera, and Firefox-3 all show the URL at the bottom left of the screen. But we cannot guard ourselves against phishing attacks in the same way with 4.0b7 because it puts the link's URL up in the Location Bar instead, where it gets truncated.

This "feature" appears to be undocumented; it is not mentioned in the Release Notes.

What config setting do I need to change to get the link's URL to show up down in the Status Bar again? (Or should I say Add-On Bar, since "Status Bar" no longer shows up under Menu -> View -> Toolbars.)

All other letters and my desktop font is normal! Hmm, i recently reinstalled win7 x64, and maybe something is wrong with that :) But, my display drivers are up to date... I must say that font on most websites are pretty clean (not in Gmail), but their names in tabs and Menu bar is still kind of dimly. The text in the adress bar looks like it is in lower resolution - a little pixelated :)

I have tried to fix it by disabling nvidia 3d vision plugin and microsoft silverlight, but none does the trick...any other suggestions ?

thanks

To begin, I utterly despise the changes to the URL Bar and the removal of the Status bar. In order to stay with the latest version of Firefox I am attempting to recreate the look and feel as best I can.

I have already installed the Status-4-Evar extension. The only thing that remains is to remove the status information and the target URL from the bar.

Are there any settings in about:config that will allow me to make these changes?

EDIT: Status information can be removed by toggling. status4evar.statusInUrlBar. Still looking for a way to remove the target URL...

it seems that every single tab gets its own unique window, now i feel that this is inefficient as well as making being organized out side of firefox a harder task. Since when you close any of the windows that hold 1 tab it removes it from the master window and the group menu.

Now hopefully this is just a bug caused by the new as well as great packaged feature that the grouping tool is.

I have heard that minefield 4.0 interface under Linux should be pretty much same as firefox 4.0 beta under Windows. But I got this annoying menu bar and don't have big gray minefield button.

Oh, I have found it. Should have disabled menu bar first. But it's on the upper right. Is there a way to move it to the upper left?

Where can I find FAQ on using tab groups in Panorama? Mine seems very buggie to the point where it seems pointless.

When right-clicking on tab, the Move to Group --> always shows New Group even though I've named that group (ie., FireFox Support). The tab also remains visible on main screen even though its content is also showing in the group. Is this how it's meant to be or is my version not displaying properly?

Is there also a method of forcing the apps tabs to refresh automatically so they stay current? I have tabs for Facebook and Twitter, and would like those to refresh so I can see if there are waiting notifications.

I must add that I'm brilliantly pleased with this new version of FF. Fast, clean and impressive. I do wish there were user manuals for those of us who prefer knowing what we're doing rather than flying blind.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I'm trying to change the layout of the new beta 8 browser, I would like to put the tab bar up into the title bar. The only problem with this is that the Home button and the New Tab button then stop working. I know that the Home button is called "home-button" but I don't know what the new tab button is called. I was merely wondering if there was a way of finding this out at all and if so how I would go about it.

Thanks.

Under Windows 7, it was possible in Ffx 4.0b8 to see a preview of all tabs in the windows taskbar and select a tabs from the preview to show it. It was usefull, for example, only to check if the iGoogle page updates and there is new mail or this kind of things.

The taskbar icons looked like several pages when several tabs where opened.

Now, in 4.0b9, all this disappears, I can only see the preview of the actual active tabs and not the others tabs. I can't select an another tabs from the windows taskbar. The icon in the taskbar doesn't look like several page when several tabs are opened

I hope this is the right place to be asking these kind og questions. I haven't been able to find any answers to this, so I'm hoping for you to be able to answer me. :)

I love how the new Firefox 4 browser is progressing, and especially love the improved speed and thus the ability to use a web app such as grooveshark, which is now almost entirely based on JavasScript, rather than Flash. Since I'm now able to use Grooveshark I'm absolutely in love with the new idea of an app tab.

My two questions has something to do with the new app tab feature, which is as following:

Firstly: When I'm using an web app in my app tab, am I ever going to be able to hide the navigation bar? Is there made plans for the development of that particular feature?

Secondly: Is there made plans for persistent app tabs across multiple windows? I find it rater odd, that my pinned app tabs is not showing on all of my browser windows if should I choose to have multiple windows open. I know that this probably will be a bit difficult to implement. What will happen when interact with one app tab on one window, and then opens the same app tab on another window? Unless app tabs runs as seperate programs, it would be hard to maintain... But nevertheless my question is still the same. Is there made plans for persistent app tabs across multiple open windows? :)


Hope you can answer my questions since I have had a hard time trying to search for them myself in the interwebs!
