Yellow text boxes under my mouse are *incredibly* annoying.

This has happened for a long time, but it's horribly annoying.

It would be one thing if they only popped up when I was hovering over the title of a post, but they pop up all the time, regardless of where the mouse pointer is.

Go away stupid text bubble, I can't read the page!

- this is why i only use RSS views of new BF posts (post topics become a drop-down menu on my Firefox toolbar)...

- BTW, Firefox only puts up a one-liner for a short period of time in message list view, so it's no big deal...

I like the pop-ups, it helps to screen the post. Mine only pop-up when when I mouse over the title.

i WISH THEY ONLY CAME UP when you put the mouse over the title, and stayed up as long as you kept it there. sometimes I can't read the preveiw fast enough.

I use that feature almost extensively. It lets me "look into" a thread to double check whether it is going to be a dumb post or something worth reading. I can sometimes go through an entire day previewing threads. Just drag your mouse in the white area instead of over the links. There is no read window then.

I like this feature too.

It's called a "tool tip" and you can likely turn them off in Windows if you like.

Agreed, I love it. I hate going into the thread only to read the first sentence and realize I didn't need to read it (especially on a slow connection)
