Windows 7: URL Display

URL Display

I noticed this awhile back but have just now decided to ask. This happens in IE, Firefox & Pale Moon.

Before, when I hovered/place mouse over a hyperlink the url path would display at the bottom of the page. This does not happen now. Is it just me and how to bring back?

-thx

Still working here on Chrome. As its a default, I'd check any third party addons you've added recently

I'm the opposite of you as quite often I wish it could be stopped

That's very odd to happen in more than one browser as this is a browser feture so it's dependent on each browser. I don't think this is computer related, but perhaps some setting you set in the browser. Or it's add-on/plug-in related. If it is plug-in related, do you have a plug-in like Java that spans across all browsers? Check all browsers for the common denominator.

This is a feature I used for many years so I know exactly what the URL goes to before I click a link and to help with my website development, etc.

I'm a hammerhead. I unchecked the status bar on all my browsers to maximize the viewable area and forgot I had done this.

Curious none of the gurus here mentioned it.
