User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 YFF35 Firefox/3.6.13 GTB7.1

After SBC Yahoo terminated it's browser service, I chose Firefox with the Yahoo setup. (So I still use AT&T Yahoo as my DSL service.) Problem: Under the description for Subject, if the description is long and hides (overflow?) under the next column (in my case, the Date), after seeing 1 or 2 extended subjects as pop-up text, the next extended (overflow?) subject does not show. As an example: "Exclusive Video Interview: Egypt & Beyond: What's Next?"  Go to actual results below for continuing description...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Pass the cursor over the subject
2.Pass the cursor over the subject
3.Pass the cursor over the subject
Actual Results:  
If I pass the cursor over the subject and it's the first or second time I am doing this, I can see the whole subject. If it is, say the third such subject,  I will only see what is not hidden under the date column. I see "Exclusive Video Interview: Egypt & B," while I do not the remaining text "eyond: What's Next?" as a pop-up. In order to reset this, I have to click on open space and then bring the cursor back to the Subject line.

Expected Results:  
Seeing the entire pop-up text "Exclusive Video Interview: Egypt & Beyond: What's Next?" 

Seeing the entire pop-up text "Exclusive Video Interview: Egypt & Beyond: What's Next?"

Is your Issue reproducible Extension-less in Safe-Mode and/or using a new Profile?

Still experiencing this. Have the problem on whatever computer (pc) I use.

I have tried a new profile - due to other problems with the "most visited" websites not showing up on new tabs. That's another bug topic. 
Safe-mode? The one on boot-up? No. Why would I even think of doing that?

RESPONSE TO 7/23 QUESTION AS TO WHETHER THIS IS STILL HAPPENING. YES IT IS STILL HAPPENING AS OF 7/30/11. HAVE NOT TRIED SAFE MODE. NOT SURE WHY I WOULD???
Once again, please read https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode. It's *not* about Window's Safemode.

George -> Any update? Does this issue occur with Firefox 6? Have you tried Firefox's Safe Mode? Have you contacted Yahoo support?
