I hate having to look down the screen to see where I'm being redirected to from a link. This is a really nice extension which in my opinion should be default behavior.

White and Black List Rated 4 out of 5 stars

We need apply a "per site list"... a white or black list.

Sometimes I use this addon on a few sites, but sometimes I use it on the most of the sites.

An essential add-on for efficient browsing that appears to be abandoned. Fix for "null" showing up when hovering over a link that doesn't have a title in newer versions of Firefox:

1. Right click on "+ Add to Firefox" and select "Save Link As..."

2. Save the .xpi file

3. Change the .xpi extension to .zip

4. Extract the zip

5. "url_tooltip-1.2.1-fx" -> "chrome" -> "url-tooltip" -> "content"

6. In "content," double-click "browser.xbl"

7. Click the radio button for "Select a program from a list of installed programs"

8. Click "OK"

9. Select Notepad

10. Click "OK"

11. "Ctrl f"

12. Find "null"

13. Replace all instances of "null" with quotes like this: ""

14. Save and close

15. Select all the folders in "url_tooltip-1.2.1-fx"

16. Right click on one of them

17. "Send to" -> "Compressed (zipped) folder"

18. Change ".zip" extension to ".xpi"

19. Drag new .xpi file onto your Firefox

20. Click "Install Now"

21. Restart Firefox

Already Great, bugs troublesome! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For Fx 14+, it might need a little bit pickup:

1. as Foxtail said below, to turnoff the boring Fx built-in link tooltip, adding the declaration in userChrome.css:

#statusbar-display {display:none !important;}

2. some CSS prefix -moz- no longer support by Fx 14+, Pls fix it!

THX for your NICE job!

Hi, this addon is really great and very useful for me! May I ask you for some additional functions? It would be nice to see in the tooltip if the link, that the pointer is hovering over, leads to an external site and if it will open in a new window (or tab).

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been trying to find a way to view full URLs now that the status text truncates them and this is perfect. I often need to see full URLs when I'm developing a page and this method is nice as it puts the relevant data right at my cursor where I'm already looking. Yes, as some other reviewers have said there is some room for customization but I think it would just be icing.

It's been a long time that I searched a tool that can display a full url without viewing at the bottom of the page. I like to see the url before clicking... it tells a lot!

Great add-on, I definitely like the idea! One thing that I find somewhat annoying, is the delay of it.

An option to change the delay, would pretty essential I'd say!

Very good but ... not fast enough ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful, works very good, but is not as fast as this new floating toolbar, part of standard Firefox, that now displays links url's on page's bottom, even in full-screen. Which, I'm sorry, leads me to first have a look at that toolbar, instead of waiting for these URL tooltips to appear.

A true relief Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works nicely, but the built-in link target tooltip is bothering from there on.
There is a very simple line either to add to your userchrome.css or to run via a Stylish script (at: http://userstyles.org/styles/46045/firefox-4-hide-url-tooltip-popup-status-panel )

That is: statuspanel { display: none !important; }

Both 'Url Tooltip' and that script here on Firefox 5.01/Windows XP SP3

nice, but it should disable the link target tooltip that annoys the crap out of everyone when the statusbar is hidden

This addon is so useful, this feature should be added to the firefox 4 default configuration! Thank you Tim Tate ;-)

It would be nice if it could disappear after defined time or some transparency.

Great addon, better than Mozilla's solution in Fx 4.0.

Just what I was looking for! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have an older smaller monitor -- too small, really, but I can ill-afford to replace it, so it will have to do. I therefore really don't like having to use up any of my valuable screen real estate on the status bar. Unfortunately, there are a number of situations in which I really do feel the need to be able to see quickly and at a glance where a page's links lead -- when dealing with people I don't entirely trust, for example, or when designing a website, to make sure that I've made no errors (which alas!, because I am an appallingly sloppy typist, I often do). These are the *only* times I bother with the status bar, and I have always vaguely resented being forced to do so. It does seem a lot of space for that one tiny piece of information.This add-on was *precisely* what I came here looking for, and it works just as advertised. I have not experienced the problems others have reported with the tool-tip text lingering too long. For me (also on Firefox 3.6.12, and in Ubuntu Linux 8.04), it goes away promptly once I've moved the cursor. I also appreciated being given the option to customize the font size of the text, and whether or not it should wrap. These are very small things, yes, but they show an attention to detail and a kind of consideration for the user that I appreciated.Thank you for writing this.
