When you hover over a link there should be a small text at the bottom that gives you the URL the link will take you to.

As of FF 55.0.1 it's missing.

BTW....what do you call this text?

EDIT

The problem was that FF 55.0.1 caused the Firefox 4-Evar extension to break

I switched to the beta version, 2017.03.19.12b, and it seems to have fixed the problem...

I guess you're talking about the status bar.

If you happen to use the add-on "Status-4-Evar" you need to update. There is currently an alpha version available on the Mozilla add-on page. It works fine (I use it).

that is not part of S4E, its firefox. but if S4E fails it could be possible not shown.

55.0.1 is delayed.

It's called 'Link Preview'.

It was Status 4-Evar version 2016.10.11.01

But there is a beta version available that fixed the problem: 2017.03.19.12b

The Link Preview still shows up without the necessity of the Status-4-Ever bar.
It could very well have been a conflict with the earlier Status-4-Ever bar version.
