Firefox and link title display delay

    Assume a web page with a piece of HTML-code like

    <A HREF="http://www.netikka.net/tsneti/info/tscmd.htm"
    TITLE="Useful CMD script tricks">tscmd.htm</A>

    If the cursor is left to hover on that link, a text-box is shown with
    the "Useful CMD script tricks" displayed for a few seconds. Then the
    text disappears. My question. Is there a setting in FF (I have 3.0.6)
    which can be use to control that delay? Or is this rather a HTML, not a
    browser related issue? My quick Google search did not provide a hint.

    All the best, Timo

    Thank you. So the five-second-only delay is a feature reported as a bug.
    IE seems to have the same behavior. On Opera the tooltip stays visible.

    All the best, Timo
