Closed Bug 1269421 Opened 5 years ago Closed 4 years ago
HTML tooltips don't work in browser action's pop-up
Steps to reproduce: 1. Download attached extension. 2. Go to about:config and set xpinstall.signatures.required to false. 3. Open Add-ons Manager and install the extension from file. 4. Click the extension's icon in the toolbar (generic puzzle icon). 5. Put the mouse pointer over the panel text and wait. Expected results: A tooltip appears (the element has a title attribute). Actual results: No tooltip appears. This is the WebExtensions version of bug 918600, and from the look of it the cause is the same (see bug 918600 comment 8).

This is trivial, there is no real logic in this change to test. Built and confirmed the fix manually.

This issue is verified as fixed on Firefox 52.0a1 (20160925030226) under Windows 7 64-bit, the tooltip is displayed after I hover over the text panel from the WebExtension icon.
