    Add Progress Meter to Firefox 8.x

    Folks.
    Have you been missing the little green progress meter from Firefox3.x? So was I, so if you would like it back, here's how.

    1. Make sure the Add-on bar is visible at the bottom of the FF8 screen. (View - Toolbars - Add On bar.)

    2. Search an add-on (or extension) called Status-4-Evar 2011..... I found it from Q/A in FF Help.

    3. Download and install it and let FF8 re-start.

    It will look like the screen below, with a bonus green bar in the address window. (Before that I added a little activity wheel - a poor substitute in FF8.)
    Am. (m, before progress meter. m, after progress meter.)

    CC, Image editing OK.

    Just thought to add this here...


    Adblock Plus 2.0.1 works marvellously in Firefox 8.0.1.

    Why? Get it and see.

    Ameerat42 - Many thanks for the heads-up on this one...!

    In FF-8 in Linux (PCLinuxOS-2011) - instead of the green blocks progress-bar, I get a nice solid blue line. Also - the download notifier has gained a 'time-left' readout.

    Both show on other instances of FF being used on other Desktops - which saves switching Desktops to see how things are progressing on another.

    Very handy - should be a "built-in".....!

    Regards, Dave.
