observed with 2000-08-23-08M18 build When the cursor is over a mail folder, a yellow tooltip usually pops up displaying the name of the folder and, in parentheses, the number of read/unread messages. However, sometimes this tooltip doesn't go away easily, staying there even when I switch to another application. Clicking on the tooltip brings NS 6 to the foreground again. This annoyance pops up from time to time and I haven't been able to find a way to consistently reproduce it.
I'm confimring this bug because it is a known problem and I have encountered this problem with recent builds. I believe there is a duplicate bug elsewere, however.

*** Bug 48113 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This is not limited to tooltips on mail folders. I have been able to duplicate it with the tool tips from the message list column headers as well.
This is also happening with the URL bar.
I'm changing this to OS: all, to reflect bug 46544 (on Linux) and bug 56771 (on OS/2). I'd also like to up it to "major" because it interferes with the functionality of other programs running on the system, which can't be seen because they are hidden behind mozilla tooltips which should not be there. Finally, I believe that this should be re-assigned to "Browser" and "XP Toolkits/Widgets: Menus" because this is a general tooltip problem that has been seen with the URL bar in the browser, not just the mailer. It shouldn't be mailer's problem, but rather (I think) added to Pinkerton's stack of tooltip bugs. A number of other bugs are related to this: bug 45530 in particular. That bug is listed as an enhancement, but because these other tooltips aren't disappearing and /it is affecting other apps/ I feel that solving this is more like a necessity. Anyway- that's my two cents. Does anyone object to changing the ownership of this and/or attempting to increase the priority (or hell, just merging it with 45530?)

agreed. I think this is a dup of that bug as well. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 45530 ***

Close, but this isn't quite a dupe of bug 45530. That one is about hiding tooltips a certain length of time after they're displayed. This bug is something that I've run into before, being that when Mozilla loses focus, the active tooltip doesn't always go away. I think we should keep these separate because 45530 is an enhancement while this one is definitely a bug. Reopening.

*** Bug 56771 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I did a search on 'tooltip' and these are the ones I found that looks very much like this one (in addition to the previously duped): bugs 45497, 46544, 53418, 53653, 54914, 57616. Personally, I find this really annoying, especially the part that it sticks on top of *other applications*. This happens both between the "Communicator" apps (mail/browser) and other apps, like word, ie ++
reassiging to pinkerton. If someone can verify it's been fixed, then we should mark it as such.
