I have a javascript that hides the status bar message, when you put the cursor over links, and I noticed that it does not work in Firefox. So I did some searches and can't seem to find any clear answers.

Some sites say that this cannot be done in Firefox. I've even found a site that states that hiding the status bar message is a criminal offense that can cost up to 14 years in prison. This seems a bit far fetched, in my opinion.

In any case, I found a site that seems to be able to somehow hide status bar messages in Firefox.


So, it doesn't seem to be true that this cannot be done in Firefox.

I can't figure out how this site does that. Can anyone with technical knowledge look into this and post the solution?

Also, if it is in fact a criminal offense to hide the status bar message I actually don't want to do it. So, if anyone knows that this is the case, please tell us.

That menu is done in Flash which is why nothing shows up in the status bar.
