Goodbye Status Bar, Hello Add-on Bar

One of the biggest complaints I have read about Firefox 4 is that Mozilla has eliminated the status bar we have all grown to be accustom to. However, just to prove that Mozilla does listen to the fans – they have given us a replacement, sort of.  The status bar might be gone – but now we have the add-on bar.
