Argh! Who thought it would be a bright idea to turn *off* tooltips? I fixed that part - apparently I'm the only one with the problem, but just do about:config in the titlebar, scroll down to 'browser.chrome.toolbar.tips', double click it and enter 'true'.

For your problem, itsjustme - which also works for my busted 'title' attributes, apparently - scroll down to 'browser.display.force_inline_alttext' and set *that* to true. That should make alt work as well as title, since it seems targeted at alt. Mozilla's really losing it.

At least, not that I can find.


I'm happy with title= .

Nah, I mean type 'about: config' into Mozilla's addressbar and hit enter. Titlebar? Still need more sleep, apparently.

Mozilla has an about:config page where you can alter many advanced or hidden settings. Most of them are not interesting, and those that are can generally be configured through the normal settings panel. Just browse to "about:config" (I didn't type that space).

browser.chrome.toolbar.tips has true as its default, so somehow it got altered at digiots setup. I didn't know about the setting, but I'll keep it in mind if the pop-ups stop working. :-)

About browser.display.force_inline_alttext, it's not for making the ALT attribute a pop-up. Here's an quote from Hidden Mozilla Prefs:

Code:
// This pref displays the alt-text instead of the "image-not-found" image
// true = force ALT text for missing images to be layed out inline
user_pref("browser.display.force_inline_alttext", false);
I have found the plugin that can be used to make the ALT attribute pop-up, it's over here for both Mozilla and Firebird:

I'm thinking whoever made the package fubared it. It was listed as 'default false' on mine and says 'user true' now. But I do seem to be the only one.

And you're right. I just saw both those settings, so changed them both but I unset the 'alt' thing after reading your post and the 'title' attribute still works. Not sure what's up with that unless either dropline gnome was somehow screwing it and flux isn't (but I swear I thought I checked that) or that somehow the tooltips controls it generally?

Anyway - we've all got our tabtips and alts and titles so it's all good. *g*

And I find about: config very interesting, myself.
