I accidentally closed my status bar in Firefox 5. Can I get it back? How do I show my status bar again?

I can't seem to find the option anywhere.

I think you mean the Add-on Bar. The status bar has been replaced by the View > Toolbars > Add-on Bar that extensions can use.

Note: The status bar shows up when it has something to say. If you hover over a link, it will show up to tell you where the link goes and if a page is being loaded, it will show up to display the status of the transfer.

It can also be toggled with the Control+/ shortcut.
