Sounds like you're in `Novice' mode, and after a year you
probably don't need to be.  `Novice' shows three lines of help
instead of a URL across the bottom, and `Intermediate' shows just
one line of help instead of the URL.  `Advanced' shows URLs,
including those in the l)ist links page.

`Intermediate' or `Advanced' will also give you the choice of
bookmarking the current document or link.  You can turn on
multiple bookmark files too, if you want to sort your bookmarks
into categories.

Also, you can see the current link's URL any time with the `='
key [general document info].

Truth will out this morning.  (Which may really mess things up.)
