Hey Guys, I am having a small query related to the use of the Firefox which is not that big but still i want the solution of that. Whenever i am surfing on the internet at that time there are some of the link appears on the web page. When i take my mouse to that link it shows the URL of the link on the status bar. I need to view that on the URL on the tooltip itself. I know there must be a Firefox extension is there but don't know about that. So help me with the name and the installation of the same.

The name of the add on is "URL Tooltip" which will give you better functionality with the Mozilla Firefox and reduce the time for handling the URL with the status bar. So download the same and see that how it is working. Thank you.

This add on is use for the following function that give the Firefox more reliable and easy to use.Display the destination URL when hovering cursor over a link. Show link URLs without looking at status bar. Useful when disabling status bar to gain extra screen space or for full screen browsing.
  • Show hyperlink destination
  • Resize title-text and URL in tooltips
Hope you liked it. Thanks

It also provide the feature of the maximizing the font of the tooltip which will shoe you the URL in the bigger font and also the title of the URL. This wrap the URL in the short form if you wish and check the Wrap URL option in the setting. If you are looking for the extension to view of the URL on the tooltip but not on the status bar then this one only give you the same. So enjoy it
