awer commented on the Firefox 4 Beta 11 Released post:
I like that the new connection status messages are now in a overlay on the bottom. It is very good, they are only there when needed.
I was not aware of this new update with Beta 11 as I learned the Status-4-Evar extension overrode that behavior. Once I disabled Status-4-Evar and restarted I was able to see what the commenter was talking about. While a page is loading you will get an overlay of the loading status just above the add-ons bar. This is similar to the behavior of Chrome (sure been saying that a lot about Firefox 4). Grant you it is a little bit of a comprise, but still the new add-on bar is not one of Mozilla’s best ideas. At least Chrome still shows link targets in (overlaid) status bar.
