in Firefox status Bar

Hi.I don't usually use Firefox a lot but just turned on the Status bar and at the bottom left hand side it says.
Transferring Data from ***
I cannot find any details about anyone any idea as to whether it is ok or not.

Just found that it is in Adblocker Plus.
I only have ad-blocker installed because of the move to the left from the plus version.
No way that I can see of adding it to Ad-block.

when on the PCA page I regularly get transferring data from ... in the status bar. It usually refers to adverts and data being collected. I regard it as harmless. Incidentally the status bar changes rapidly on my system and to actually read some of it would be difficult.

Ok thanks.
Just that one shows most of the time unless I move the cursor up and down the page.
Looks like i may have to go back to Ad-bock plus again.

Hi provider 2 thanks for that If I can get I/E working properly I will not use Firefox but will bookmark it just in case.
I suppose i should be using Firefox till IE9 beta comes out next week.
I am just hoping that will solve my problem.
