But if the pointer is moved to any other page element that has no title assigned, the title previously displayed as a tooltip. This is only reset when the pointer hovers over another element with a title. That tooltip is then displayed over everything else. This behaviour even persists across tabs, so I am actually seeing tooltips from the page in another tab while I type this. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Visit http://www.suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/ 2. Hover pointer over the picture of a pink pub in the top-left corner. 3. Title text "Click here to return to the front page" appears as a tooltip. 4. Hover pointer over any paragraph on the page or on the picture below the "pick a town or village" drop-down. 5. "Click here to return to the front page" appears as a tooltip. 6. Hover pointer over one of the small flag icons. 7. Foreign language tooltip appears. 8. Repeat step 4. 9. The same foreign language tooltip appears. Actual Results: Inappropriate tooltip appears Expected Results: No tooltip should appear over a page element without a "title" tag.
Works for me, Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9b1) Gecko/2007110903 Firefox/3.0b1 Does it work if you create a new profile? (note that you don't need to delete your current profile to do this test) -- see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager
Interesting. Under the new profile it works as expected rather than suffering the wrong behaviour. I wonder what's in the old profile that might be causing this?
Do you have any extensions or custom themes installed? If so, try disabling them temporarily (and restart Firefox) and see if that helps. (Tools->Add-ons)
Good spot Mats. The problem is caused by the McAfee SiteAdvisor extension. I'll see about raising a bug with them for this. I can see here how extensions must be a real pain for the core developers when they cause problems that get bugs raised. Thanks for your help.
Resolving as invalid, since this is not Firefox's fault.
