  No status bar of any kind indicating total number of files in a folder

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Up to some time ago (I'd say pretty recently), when you opened a
  folder in Nautilus, there used to be a kind of status bar at the
  bottom indicating the total number of files. Long ago it used to be a
  proper status bar, which was the most functional and usable. But then
  of course I guess it looked too old-style, so it was replaced by the
  less functional and annoying "overlay" kind of status bar (imitating
  that of Google Chrome) on a corner, which would stay right on top of
  filenames and hide them, until you'd move the mouse over it so that it
  would move to the opposite side. A step backwards but at least there
  still was a status bar with the total number of files.

  Now it's gone. It only appears when you select some files, to show the
  name and size of the selected file (if it's unique) or the number and
  total size of selected files. But if you don't select any file, the
  total number of files in the folder is not shown anywhere. You have to
  select all, which is annoying.

  I don't know whether this is just a "classic" bug (meaning unintended
  behavior resulting from an error in code) or one more in a long list
  of demential "working as intended" design decisions that have been
  constantly degrading the usability and functionality of Nautilus in
  the recent years.
