Firefox 4: No Status Bar & No Multirow Bookmark Support

The latest Firefox v. 4 has been released. So far it looks good and has been running just fine, but if you were used to your current setup under Firefox 3.xx some adjustments may have to be made.

The status bar at the bottom is now gone. Fortunately there's an add-on called Status-4-Evar that puts it right back on there for you. We're glad that someone has made this add-on but is it really necessary to make users have to go hunt down these things that should be in the program to begin with? I can understand wanting to progress and have your software keep up with interface trends and look stylish, but Mozilla should make this customizable in the options settings.

Also, we had been using the multirow bookmarks toolbar extension but now that extension won't work with Firefox 4. Fortunately there's a workaround with that too, the multirow bookmark style to be used with the Stylish extension. Download the Stylish extension first if you don't already have it.
