All mouse rollovers on images and hyperlinks show a tiny white box but there are no words displayed from that alt or title tags in the HTML tags.

3. All tool tips are empty.
Actual Results:  
All tool tips on rollovers are blank.

The alt and title tag words should appear in the tool tip balloons.
Alt tags are never displayed as tooltip but title tag tooltips are working for me with Seamonkey trunk.

Do you get this in the firefox safemode ?

You are correct this tool tips are working in safemode. 

But, I do know Firefox does not use alt tags. But, my web site uses both alt and title tags everywhere that is appropriate. And tool tips was working on all websites up until I installed the b3 beta this morning. As I noted tool tips is broken now on all web sites I visit in normal Firefox mode.
The safemode is just Firefox without addons.
It must be a bug in an addon if it works in the safemode.

Please disable them one by one to find the addon that is causing this.

Disabling google toolbar for firefox v. 5.0.20090122Wb2 cured this condition.
