I had to disable something(?) in add-ons, in order to be able to read PDF's. It was Adobe Acrobat NPAPI plug-in, version 10.1.4
Did not have this problem before. THEN I noticed that my status bar no longer had my weather icon, date or showed status of loading site.
Any questions I type take me to old answers, for Firefox 4 or so. I am using 14.0.1
I have done the command /, just restores an empty status bar. The answer submitted does not work. I cannot get my weather or status working. I had to reselect disable the above add - on so i could read a PDF...I had tried resetting Firefox to see if that would help. The answers pertain to Firefox 4, I am using Firefox 14.0.1.
