On Firefox though, this is taking a turn for the bizarre; I can't understand where there is scope for disagreement. When I tried it yesterday it was using the version from the Ubuntu repo, so I wondered if maybe it had been mucked about with. I just downloaded a copy of the Windows build from their website and ran it with a fresh profile - I definitely have a status bar without changing any settings. Maybe you're seeing a bug or a repackaged version with changed defaults?
