Just a note to let you know that the status= text does not appear in the status bar for Firebox, but works just fine on IE>

It's considered a security issue so by default some browser prevent a 'change' in the status, i.e. the actual url shows instead of the words you put in the menu. In Firefox that is a property you can change you can turn that back on. You can also use title, if you just want to show the information, but that puts a little yellow box right where you are doing the mouseover. If you want to provide information, rather than block the url so it doesn't show, you can also use tooltips.js module available on the Milonic Bolt-on Modules page.

There's more info on the security issue at this topic. ... 6387#26392
