Displays link targets in a tooltip at the bottom of the browser window if the status bar is hidden. The status bar is hidden automaticall in full-screen mode, and you may hide it permanentally in the View menu.
Another issue that I’ve found is that the tool tip seems to linger in background windows. That is, if I shift+click a link in one window, and then return to that window (either closing the newly created window or simply clicking the title bar of the original window) the tool tip from the clicked link is still visible until I click somewhere on the page or hover over another link.
Hopefully you can fix these issues, this is so close to exactly what I want…
Was wondering if you had experienced a problem I am having with this extension. When I scroll it causes all the page that scrolls behind the tool tip to be jittery looking. I really like this Extension but the double scrolling i have to do to solve this is annoying sometimes.
Viktor (comment #10) had a good point. Any chance to see LTD for Thunderbird as well, so that we can finally get rid of the status bar?
None of the addins providing this functionality (yours but also URL Tooltip, Tooltip Plus, Smaller Tooltip) are available for Thunderbird.
Please consider adding customization of tooltip background color and text font style and color. On some occasions tooltip background color and text font color are almost identical making it hard to read.
I gotta say, I loved this extension ever since I found it, especially on my laptop
I got a couple of suggestions though:
1- the same many have already suggested: the bar could be a bit wider, to make it easier to read longer urls
2- what #18 said, if I’m seeing a page with a white background, the bar doesn’t stand out as much, making it harder to recognize it
All in all, this is already a very good addon that can be made even better
Can you fix this problem (not only you) ? thank you very much :-)
css code broken others add-ons = Some add-ons (Link Target Display 1.3/1.4 & Link Status 1.6 for me because i use use these add-ons) stopped working (url or icone no display) with this version = Redirect Remover 2.6.3/2.6.4 (WinXPHome+SP3 Firefox 3.6.3/---/3.6.8).
A really excellent extension! Thank you very much. I wanted to echo requests for customizable formatting and less URL truncation.
I’m also having a small problem: If I hover a link and the URL gets displayed before I click the link, the displayed URL persists until I hover over a new link somewhere.

You know, it’s kind of amazing to see all the ideas that you have implemented as Firefox extensions that are now actually part of Firefox itself!
For example, this functionality. I think people first saw it in Chrome, which did it since version 1, and then you saw it, liked it, and implemented it for Firefox.
But is there any point to keeping this extension updated? This functionality is already default in Firefox 4, which utterly KILLS FF3, so I really don’t think anyone else is gonna still be using it, and hell! FF5 is due out Tuesday! So why keep this updated?
This hasn’t been updated for Firefox 5, so it “won’t” work. (Like with the Google Toolbar add-on, which hasn’t yet been updated, you can install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter add-on, which will change your settings to allow incompatible add-ons to be used, if they are actually compatible and just not updated)
If C. Pierrot is right (I haven’t really tried seeing if it is or not, since I only installed it in case I might need it), then you may as well just remove this add-on on Firefox versions 4+.
