It'd be great if the page number wouldn't be displayed like

"page 3  and  4 of 6"
"page 3-4 of 6"...

this  would be a HUGE improvement!!

instead of   "NUMBER ... text space ANOTHER NUMBER space and (in some cases) yet another number... in others nothing...  
// you have to see the entire sequence to see what it signifies

NUMBER space and NUMBER -- OR NUMBER hyphen NUMBER  .. and Number... 
// you can see by a glance which case it is: you're viewing one page or more..

way more intelligent! a whole lot easier to recognize...

the only way to see how great it would be is to see it for yourself...
try it, please! :)

I understand that the world is big and it's the majority of users that matters, not any minority of them.

Current handling is as resolved for bug 90150 [1] with implementation of a
STR_PAGES_TWO_CONJUNCTION, with translatable "and" for the visible page range,

but also 

STR_PAGES_COUNT_EXTENDED, which joins the visible range with "-"

So, request would be to eliminate the STR_PAGES_TWO_CONJUNCTION, and only use the STR_PAGES_COUNT_EXTENDED on the Status bar.

-1, though we could simply modify the "and" conjunction and use the "-" of the extended count.

Third attempt to revert this into "A-B of C" :-). Please consider more than two pages.
