I was using the Mozilla 0.9.9 build. I should have downloaded a new one but 0.9.9. It doesn't occcur all the time.
I see this all platforms. Esp with commercial. Nominating. Internal folks see bug http://bugscape/show_bug.cgi?id=12501 for good test cases.

PS,..I saw it Win32 2002-03-20-05 Trunk
nsbeta1- per Nav triage team
Keywords: nsbeta1 → nsbeta1-
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.2alpha
Steps to reproduce: 1. Launch Browser. 2. Open another app (like a dos prompt) and put it in front of (overlapping) the browser, just right of the reload button. 3. Hover the mouse over the reload button. Observe: Reload Tooltip shows up thru other app. Expected: Wshould hide tooltips when we are not the frontmost app.

Duplicate of bug 49679.
It is kinda a dupe, though bug 49679 seems to be dealing more with "Always On Top" apps (where Mozilla or the reference app has focus), while this bug seems to be dealing with Mozilla showing tooltips even when it doesn't have focus, where other apps don't show tooltips, at least on Windows and Mac OS X.
Oh, and of course that in bug 49679 we want tooltips to show up, but on Windows apparently not on top of the "Always On Top" app. On Mac we do want tooltips on top of the "Always On Top" app. For this bug we don't want tooltips to show up.

I'm using Firefox 1.5cr2 for OSX and I'm still seeing this bug.
Alternate steps to reproduce: Have mailnews open, showing a folder/newsgroup with a truncated name. Use the context menu to open that folder in a new window. Ensure that the new mailnews window covers the old one so that the mouse is now above the new window. Nudge the mouse slightly, and you get a tooltip from the old mailnews window. Alternate-alternate steps to reproduce: Have mailnews open, showing a folder/newsgroup with a truncated name. Position another in-process window (e.g. browser, js console) so that it partially overlaps the truncated name; hover over this other window where the truncated name is, and a tooltip appears.
This is a little bit annoying in normal use, but it makes my Link Tooltip Greasemonkey script (http://mikelward.com/software/firefox/) almost unusable. Tooltips remain visible after changing to a different tab or window.
I should also have mentioned: What makes this so annoying is that the tooltip shows up even in other windows. If I then hover over the tooltip, Firefox switches back to the window or tab that the tooltip belongs to.
tooltips totally busted, not working at all for folders for thunderbird 2008041203 vista - so can't test current trunk. comment 15 happens with version 22.214.171.124pre (20080227)

still an issue for anyone?
is this a bug at all? happens with other gtk 2 apps too here on ubuntu intrepid.
seen once in the last week on vista. However, I'm not sure it's the same problem because until then I hadn't seen it in several months.
In Firefox 3.5 and 3.0, the tooltip appears when you hover over the window not in focus, but disappears when you leave the window. So, is this a bug?
