I recently installed Firefox 4b7, under Windows and 4b8 under Ubuntu at home. In both cases, I miss the status bar in the bottom of the window. Some of the add-ons that I use, such as XMarks, are using it to display some icons, as well as accessing some other functions.

How can I restore this statusbar under Firefox 4 ?

Merci !

Right-click on one of the toolbars and select "Add-on Bar". You can also select it from under the Firefox Menu under the "Options" sub-menu.

Also, if you're wanting to get back the classic status bar functions such as displaying the page loading status, you can install the Status-4-Evar add-on.
