I'm using Firefox 10.0.2 and the Status-4-Evar add-on. The status bar isn't showing, however.

I've recently installed Moonlight, but I've disabled it and still no status.

Now, when hovering over a link, I don't see where it'll lead me.

Any suggestions on how to recover the status bar?

Control-/ shows and hides the "Add-on bar" at the bottom of your browser. You can also view and change its status in the View menu.

Absolutely right. Correct answer. :-) – GUI Junkie Mar 15 '12 at 21:53
It's very easy to disappear it … and some websites like to do that to you in order to hide what they're doing. I only like to get rid of it when I want more vertical screen real estate. – Andrew Beals Mar 16 '12 at 15:34
