Steps to reproduce:

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to Freenode.net and use their online webchat IRC client.
2. Focus on the bottom text field, so you see the blinking text cursor.
3. In any channel where there's a hyperlink, hover mouse cursor over that link.
4. Don't do anything with the mouse for now.
5. Type in any text.
6. Observe the tooltip that shows where the hyperlink is linking to is obstructing your view to see what you have typed in the text field.





Actual results:

The tooltip that shows where the hyperlink is linking to is obstructing your view to see what you have typed in the text field.


Expected results:

The tooltip should move out of the way, preferably below the Firefox window (if window is not maximized), or be positioned above the text field (if window is maximized), so it doesn't obstruct the text field while typing.
