    In 10.11 Apple introduced some very annoying type of status messages, in the lower left corner of the window, in Safari and Mail.

    Instead of having an always visible status bar as it was before, you only see text when something is happening. Eg you hover the mouse over an URL.

    This is extremely annoying since it makes the status area flicker a lot. It reminds me of Windoze...

    I want the old behavior back, does anyone know how I can get that?

    Not possible, I’m afraid. The old status bar is gone. You’d have to look for a plugin of some kind, if one exists.
