This is quite annoying. I was not even in the edit toolbar menu, just normal browsing. I clicked on the status bar and now it is completely missing, restarted FF and still missing. Firefox version: 14.0.1

Do you mean the add-on bar (View menu / Toolbars / Add-on Bar, or just press Ctrl+/ to toggle)? Firefox hasn't has a status bar for quite some time now, so if you want it back you'll probably need to use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/status-4-evar/ or similar.

Did you perhaps click Ctrl + / by accident? That's the shortcut for opening/closing the add-on bar, which I'm assuming is what you're referring to.

The bar that has disappeared many people refer to as "staus bar" - the correct name is "Add-on Bar". In your top menu of Firefox go to View > Toolbars > Add-on Bar. It should have a tick next to it. Don't ask me why sometimes it seems to untick itself but that is how you get it to show again :)
