i have an IE window open right now. the status bar is turned on. (go to view, status bar if you don't know what i'm talking about) if i do CTRL+N (open a new window), the new window will not have the status bar. even if i turn it on, next time i open a new window it won't be there again. it wasn't always like this. before, the status bar would be on every window. WTF?!?
