hiding/changing window status

P: n/a
Hi,
I am trying to hide/change the window.status text when the mouse is
over the hyperlink text but it does not seem to work on Mozilla
(Firefox). Am I doing something wrong:

<a href="somefile.php" onMouseOver="window.status=''">text</a>
<a href="somefile.php" onMouseOver="window.status='sample
text'">text</a>

Thanks.

Firefox 1.x, Seamonkey 1.x, Internet Explorer 7 beta 2 and Opera 8+ all
allow users to disable the ability to modify the status bar text.

The status bar text is there to provide the users reliable, non-modified
information about http connection, hypertext resource location, etc...
Browser manufacturers should never allow scripters to "toy with" the
status bar text.
