    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
