annoying pop up window

Post  Arashi Storm on Tue Jun 02, 2009 1:44 am

I have just recently noticed that when I scroll over certain text I get a window that pops up very near by that has a description of what my cursor is over. I have not been able to find a way to turn this off. I was wandering if anyone could help. I have looked through personal settings on my computer under the control panel without luck. I also looked through some settings on my browser as well.

Several different places. If I pull up yahoo and put my cursor in the search box a small box appears and says "use up and down arrow keys to select suggestions". Or on the tab on the top it says post a reply and when I run the cursor over it says "post a reply in a white box". It doesn't happen on this site, but on the main TOR site when I go to click on a thread if I leave the cursor there for a second the white box pops up kinds describing what is in the thread or possibly even the first sentence of the first post of the thread.

Firefox. However I'm not for certain its my browser because I get some of the same stuff on my desktop. I found a way to turn it off for folders, but it was for folders only.

Sounds like a accessibility setting, check those in your control panel
Also check mouse-overs in your mouse control panel

bah, I still can't figure it out. I thought I was gonna find it under the accessibility, but no luck. Do you know what those boxes are called? I tried searching it on yahoo, but I don't know the right name for those boxes or for that option.

After some searching, I think it might be called a mouse over caption. The only forum I found about turning it off says you can't turn it off. I hope thats not true.

Do you have Yahoo toolbar installed? If so, I believe that is your problem, I've seen yahoo do similar things on webpages before.
