Windows 7: Mouse over pop-ups

Mouse over pop-ups

Hope I can describe this properly!

On the main pages of this site, if a mouse is hovered over a question, a pop-up appears with more of the question.

If I now open an Explorer window over the top of the page the pop-ups will appear on the Explorer page. Not always, and it's not a big deal .......if I swipe it with my mouse it disappears!
I just wondered why it happens and if it happens to anyone else.

It doesn't happen only with this site but others where mouse overs produce pop-ups.

Yeah, I think it happens to everybody, and I've heard that it was Java Script doing this. Forgive me if I'm wrong, I'm no expert lol.

If I am right, then this is what you are asking about. Check out this link.

Anyway to disable mouse-over text boxes in Firefox?

Thanks for the link, but it isn't the pop-ups appearing where they should that's the problem. The pop-ups are showing through other pages that are open on top of the page that has the pop-up.
Like I said, it's not a big problem: I move my mouse and they disappear.....slightly annoying though!

Oh, ok I see what you are talking about. This pop-up also overlaps other windows. I guess it's an annoyance we just have to tolerate.

Ha Ha......that's it exactly. My question's pop-up showing thru' Control Panel.

If it happens to you too, then I guess it's a common thing that we'll have to live with.

Thanks for your time.
