User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0

If you hover over a link, the url shows up at the bottom right,
if now the link element is removed from the dom(or the div around it), the url preview is not removed and sticks around forever.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open
2. move mouse over 'link'
Actual Results:  
url preview stays around at bottom

Expected Results:  
url preview should be removed if the link that is previewed is removed from the dom

Same Issue/Dupe of 629024?
Like that one it's repro'able against 3.5. and thus not related to Bug 541656.
It's just more obvious now ;-).

The front-end actually just reacts to setOverLink() calls from the core. That ends up being triggered by nsGenericElement::LeaveLink in the link-hover case - seems like we should make it fire when links are removed from the DOM, somehow.

Backed out because of excess of stupidity. I put some stuff that shouldn't be in the patch or even pushed the wrong patch (didn't check in details).

Backout rev:
