When opening list of visited sites in location bar tooltip with site title disappears so quick (a fraction of second), that one cannot read it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the list arrow on the location bar
2. In the list with visited sites, move the mouse pointer to any site.
3. Watch a tooltip with site title.

Actual Results:  
Tooltip appears and hides _very_ quick, so you cannot read site title.

Expected Results:  
Tooltip should stay visible for at least second.

Hmm...As far as I can see, the bug #240095 is slightly different from this. That bug is about location bar itself, while this one is about tooltips when location`s list is opened already. Correct me please, if I`m wrong.
Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
I'm seeing this behavior in 1.5 - (1.0.7 doesn't show tooltips at all)

But also, if I click from where I hovered to get the disappearing tooltip, it doesn't load the site, just reloads the current page.

I've seen this on 3 different PCs (all xp)
Ever confirmed: true
The problem is, that I see no tooltips. Or do you mean with tooltips the dropdown list?
If you mean the dropdown list itself that is blinking, it is Bug 320824.
no, we mean the tooltips.  I'll give more complete steps to reproduce.  First of all with the steps I'm going to give I've seen this happen on larger monitors, but you may need to size your firefox window smaller if these steps don't work.

1. Go to or so that one or both are in your location bar dropdown.

2. Go to a different site or even a blank tab

3. Drop down the location bar, and hover on the title information for cnn/cbc

At this point the tooltip should appear and disappear quickly

4. where you were hovering click to go to cbc/cnn

At this point the current page/blank tab will reload rather than loading cbc/cnn

Please reopen if you see otherwise.
