Firefox 4: Status Bar Info & Status-4-Evar

As I reported earlier, back with Firefox 4 Beta 7, someone came up with the bright idea to eliminate the status bar and replace it with the optional (and crappy) Add-on Bar .

Because of the width, trying to use the Add-Ons Manager in Sidebar tweak is not going to be very useful. You must still restart whenever adding/removing or disabling/enabling add-ons. Mozilla has finally ‘un-hidden‘ the option to install add-ons via a file (gear button next to the add-ons…
