Tiney rectangular pop-ups follow mouse arrow

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Cyberiade.it Anonymous Remailer, Jun 21, 2008.

  1. This irratating pop-up informs you that you are
    on a google search page when you happen to
    be on one or tells you that you are are the
    first page of a document (often obscuring a
    word in the document with it's presence).
    It is a total nusance. Pressing F7 kills it until
    you move the mouse. Then up it
    pops again. Using FF-3. Windows does the
    same kind of crap when mouse arrow passes
    over various files etc. Need to figure out
    how to kill this as well but for now I would
    greatly appriciate any help with FF problem.

    In Fx, F7 toggles caret browsing, with an optional warning to display
    it or not.

    Tools > Options > Advanced > General tab
    [?]Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages


    In Windows start looking at settings for accessibility or ease of
    access and mouse pointers/cursors.

  3. Thank you Rom. Read both the URL's you posted. I have been screwing
    around with F7 and the warning dialog box and have yet to have any
    success. I will persist. I do get some relief from the nasty
    little boxes when writing in my news client

    "This preference can be set by checking the "Do not show me this
    dialog box again" checkbox on the "Caret Browsing" dialog that appears
    the first time [F7] is pressed."

  4. Dear Rom:
    The madness is over. Cured by the above URL pasted you
    into your last post. Toggled <browser.chrome.toolbar_tips > and
    instantly all is right with the world. I owe you. If you are ever in
    Nicaragua let me buy you a beer.

    Cordially, TC
