<script>
function noStatus()
{
      window.status = ""
}
</script>
<a href="javascript:bla()" onmouseover="noStatus()">fgfdgfd</a>

you have to return true otherwise it wont work

<a href="javascript:bla()" onmouseover="noStatus();return true;">fgfdgfd</a>

also, you shouldn't use the "javascirpt:bla()" syntax.  proper coding is

<a href="#" onclick="bla();" onmouseover="noStatus()">fgfdgfd</a>
