    It's the same js.
    However, FF allows users to specify whether or not viewed pages should be allowed to change statusbar text.
    I believe that it may be set to not allow it by default, which is most likely why it doesn't appear to work in FF.

    Not if the browser is set to block the window.status js.

    Window.status blocking was implemented because some sites would use it to trick users by disguising the true destinations of links.
    FF has always been ahead of IE when it comes to giving users the tools to regain control over their browsing experience - in this case, by giving them the power to block or tweak less popular practices.

    Browsers with proper security don't allow access to the status bar so as to stop the address that links point to from being spoofed in order to confuse people as to where they are on the web and capture all their passwords.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
