Lightning 2.6.1 Kills Thunderbird Status Bar Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After installing Thunderbird 24.0.1 and Lightining 2.6.1 (on Win 7 & 32 bit) I found that the Thunderbird status bar was no longer functioning correctly. When an account was highlighted it showed only the current profile name and when a folder was highlighted, additionally the total and unread number of messages. The download progress was no longer shown and, more importantly, nor were the addresses of links.By disabling Lightning normal performance of the status bar was restored.However, I then tried rolling back to Thunderbird 17.0.8/Lightning 1.9.1, but the problem now occurs with these as well.
