Since version 4.0b7pre, there is no more statusbar in Firefox, which has been replaced by the new add-ons bar.

The main problem is that a lot of users like me are missing some valuable information that was displayed in the statusbar on previous versions. For instance, when hovering a link the url is now displayed in the address bar and you can't see the entire address. Other information like which servers are being contacted when you load a page are no longer displayed.

For that, you need an addon.
This one precisely.
