Description Christian Weisgerber freebsd_committer 2020-09-19 22:16:23 UTC
FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE/amd64, ports head @ 548931.

The display of tooltips seems broken for Firefox 81.0rc2. They pop up and immediately disappear again, too quick to read. This affects tooltips on page content and for the built-in PDF reader, but not those for the Fx user interface.
Comment 1 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2020-09-25 14:55:37 UTC
Web content or browser chrome? Either way I can't reproduce inside 12.1 amd64 jail both on X11 (via Xwayland) and Wayland (via MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1).

RC2 is now the release. Try reporting upstream instead after reproducing in a fresh profile.
Comment 2 Christian Weisgerber freebsd_committer 2020-09-25 16:49:56 UTC
As I wrote above, it only affects web content and not browser chrome.

It also happens with a fresh profile.

I also see it on OpenBSD on different hardware.

So far I have been unable to find anybody else who can reproduce this. I have no idea how to narrow this down.
Comment 3 Graham Perrin freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2020-10-03 18:30:21 UTC
Christian, have you tested with Firefox in safe mode?


Re: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2020-September/291726.html

Not reproducible here with Firefox 81.0_2,2 in safe mode on FreeBSD-CURRENT r366136. Tested: 

Comment 4 Christian Weisgerber freebsd_committer 2020-10-03 19:45:44 UTC
(In reply to Graham Perrin from comment #3)

Same problem in safe mode. firefox-81.0.1,2 at this point.
Comment 5 Bill Blake 2020-11-03 07:52:16 UTC
amd64 12.2-RELEASE.  I see the problem with this HTML:

<a title="some title text">some text</a>

This is with a fresh install and profile. 

Thoughts on tracking this down?  I use some applications that rely on my being able to see this title text and its driving me nuts!
Comment 6 Christian Weisgerber freebsd_committer 2020-11-08 00:51:40 UTC
The problem has been introduced by this upstream commit:

"Avoid unnecessary coordinate conversions when showing tooltips"

Reverting this fixes 82.0.2 for me.  I have not looked deeper yet.
Comment 7 Christian Weisgerber freebsd_committer 2020-11-08 16:36:46 UTC
I have opened a bug at the Mozilla upstream:
Comment 8 Graham Perrin freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2023-04-23 13:44:29 UTC
Fixed upstream in 2022.
