The latest beta of Firefox seems to have moved the link URL display from the address bar to a small box in the bottom left. I was happy with them in the address bar, so is there a way to move them back?

This is a new feature that many people requested. Also, I think you mean beta 12? – user3463 Feb 27 '11 at 22:51
@Randolph: I certainly didn't request it ;) and yes, i mean beta 12. – RCIX Feb 27 '11 at 22:56
Reading the forums, I think you're in the minority. A lot of people are happy it has moved, and no clear evidence of a way to move it back. – user3463 Feb 27 '11 at 23:03
I loved that they moved it to the location bar, it makes so much sense. Like: "you are here > here's where you're going" Of course, it was odd at first, and it took me a few weeks to get used to it, but now that it's second nature to be, they go and change it to Chrome's ham-fisted "overlay" solution. Ugh! There's all this white space in the location bar begging to be used, yet they decide to overlay it on top of page content?!? – user69449 Feb 27 '11 at 23:46

Try the Link Location Bar Addon to add it back. enter image description here
