For web browsing I use Pale Moon. Pale Moon has a Status Bar, similar to what is now known as the Add-on Bar in Firefox.
With Pale Moon when I hover over a link
- URL is shown in the status bar
- URL is shown instantly
- Entire width of status bar is allowed for URL, if necessary
With Firefox when I hover over a link
- URL is shown in a tooltip in lower left corner
- URL is shown after intentional delay
- Only half the browser window width is allowed for URL
Is there a way to make Firefox behave more like Pale Moon? I realize Status-4-Evar might be the best solution here but I wish to see what, if any other options are out there. I will also accept well thought out and referenced answers as to why the Firefox way is "better".
