User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:23.0) Gecko/20130614 Firefox/23.0 Iceweasel/23.0a2 (Nightly/Aurora) Build ID: 20130614004016 Steps to reproduce: You won't believe this one. Install totally fresh Firefox. Browse http://www.facebook.com/help/213481848684090/ (no account needed.) See the Mozilla Firefox Safari Google Chrome Internet Explorer list? Well slowly move the pointer over one of them whilst watching the lower left corner of the screen for link preview. Now do it again on the same link. Actual results: Notice how the results are different now, even for the same link!! Expected results: Yes there is a reason. But that's no excuse! Now since you can't make up your mind, why don't you show the user both. Don't play double take or switcheroo. And please don't mention extensions. I am not asking for any functionality. I am saying you have a bug in the way you present things.
I'm not able to repro the issue on Win 7.
Ok, I see what you mean: 1st over: tooltip displays http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html&h=9AQFYwd6p&s=1 2nd over: tooltip displays http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html Code source: <a href="http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" onmouseover="LinkshimAsyncLink.swap(this, "http:\/\/www.mozilla.com\/en-US\/firefox\/all.html");" onclick="LinkshimAsyncLink.swap(this, "\/l.php?u=http\u00253A\u00252F\u00252Fwww.mozilla.com\u00252Fen-US\u00252Ffirefox\u00252Fall.html&h=9AQFYwd6p&s=1");">Mozilla Firefox</a>
Yes, and besides the security arguments which I am purposely not bringing up here, at least the program should not play eye games with the user.
I.e., be consistent.
