Hi,

If I put the mouse on the figure, x and y axis are displayed on the left-bottom corner of the figure.
but the x axis is displayed as scientific notation, I want it to be displayed as decimal notation.

how to make x axis or y axis values displayed as decimal notation on the left-bottom corner?

You need to send your question to Matplotlib-users if you have not already done so. A satisfactory answer is not guaranteed, of course.
Your original question is a good one; you are looking for what is, as far as I can see, a feature that is almost impossible to find in the documentation without already having a pretty good idea of where to look and what to look for--and even then, it's easy to miss it. See http://matplotlib.org/api/_as_gen/matplotlib.axes.Axes.format_xdata.html?highlight=format_xdata#matplotlib.axes.Axes.format_xdata and the reference to fmt_xdata in http://matplotlib.org/gallery/recipes/common_date_problems.html?highlight=fmt_xdata
