IE9 lower left url on mouseover, how to stop

It is very annoying. Every link mouseover displays the link's URL in the lower left corner of IE9. I know it is to replace the Status Bar, but is there way to hide them like hiding the Status Bar?

Thanks in advance.

This should remove the URL from the lower left corner.

Right click in the Tab area of IE9.
Untick Status Bar.

Does not work

If Status Bar is checked, mouse over URL targets are displayed on the Status Bar.

If Status Bar is unchecked, mouse over URL targets are displayed as popups in the lower left corner. As a page is navigated, the popup produce an annoying strobe effect. Want to stop the popups. And no, they are impervious to popup blockers.

Searched the Registry yesterday and could not find the switch.

You won't find a way to turn it off.
Every browser does it, and will continue to do it.

IE7 & 8 did not do it. No version of Firefox has ever done it, including 4.0.1. There has to be a way to stop it.

Duh IE 7 and 8 are not, ARE NOT IE 9. And Firefox 4 does indeed do it.
You won't find a way to stop it. IT is done as a security enhancement.

Firefox 4 does the same thing but if you use this add-on Status-4-Evar
at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...status-4-evar/ it gets rid of that and adds it the status bar

Bongo, forgot about Status-4-evar. Did install that add on in FF4 to get rid of the annoying popups. Is there such an add on for IE9?
