Firefox 3.0 Beta Testers
If you are Beta testing and there is not an up to date version
and you need to install the latest and have even turned off compatibility
testing you will still only be able to install at addons through the
Advanced Details and on to the "Complete Version History"
But there is still no indication of minVersion-maxVersion
that was actually assigned -- they can differ between products.
Was recently added "Ignore version check" but apparently tries to immediately download, hit F5 then you can download from the turned green "add" button.
Still doesn't indicate the version range assigned to the addon.
a collection toolbar widgets that provide replacements for what was previously in the status bar. After installing the extension, you can customize your toolbars and drag the "Status Text", "Progress Meter", and "Download Status" items wherever you want. [options][customize],
Keyboard shortcut: (see Keyboard shortcuts) The only good thing that came out of this for the UI is that there is now
a keyboard shortcut ("Ctrl+/") to toggle Status/Addons Bar on/off.

Options set in Tools → Add-ons → Extensions → Status-4-Evar (options)
Options shown reflect choices in Status-4-Evar 2011.01.17.02.3:
Seems to make no difference whether "Show status text in the location bar is
checked or not" -- but isn't it the purpose to show this text. Marking as checked
just in case it does make a difference.
Uncheck "Always show the toolbar Progress Meter"; otherwise, empty hole, and
hovered links will be truncated before the progress metering box.
2011.01.17.02 (2011-01-28) -- still works on on 4.0b10 but same version fails on on 4.0b11pre so the problems are Firefox -- it is in 4.0b11pre that the extension started failing and still broken on the 29th by no longer showing status text for anything (hovering links).
