Problem with Firefox...or so I suspect.

Hey all, I'm having a bit of a problem with Firefox or so I imagine. The little blurb that shows up when you hover over links and such is cut off for me in Firefox. I'll give you two images to illustrate the problem for you.

The problem: When I hover over the little heart icon, the word Memories should be displayed in a little blurb. This does not happen in Firefox:
Posted Image

What it should look like:
Posted Image

I apologize for the craptastic images, I'm still getting used to my new laptop and have yet to install Photoshop.

It is fairly annoying that these links don't display properly and I would appreciate any help to fix this greatly.

Thank you.

Please list version of Firefox being used. Either Firefox 3.0 or Firefox version 2.0.0.15. BTW, I checked the page with mouseover and had no problem so it may be a problem with one of FF's custom files. Any chance this started after adding an add-on?

Oh, so sorry about that. I'm using Firefox 3.0.

Edit: Custom files would be the extensions and themes I use, yes?

Custom files would be like about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css or user.js. Some of these may not have been created if not needed. I refuse to use FF 3.0 at this point until some of the little problems are fixed. My no mouseover on the site example doesn't count in this case.

In the userChrome.css, you might search for anything related to tooltip styling. Might be able to add a width to the style like:

tooltip {
width: 200px;
font-size: 1.0em;
}

Just an example.

See if this may help, too, for FF3: Standard diagnostic - Firefox

Figured out the problem, disabling the Skype extension for Firefox made everything okay again. Don't really need it, so that's fine with me. Thank you for all your help, it's really appreciated.

That's why I asked, "Any chance this started after adding an add-on?". Kinda figured it may be an add-on, but you didn't respond to that question.

Glad you got it fixed.

Ah, didn't notice that question as you edited it into your post. Will be more alert next time. Sneaky little extension, doesn't let you uninstall it, have to do it manually. Removed it all together.

Thanks for the help and have a happy 4th of july.
