Anyone know how to get rid of this? Is this a vBulletin feature?
It is a VB feature. Don't know of any way of getting rid of it, but I wonder: why do you need it removed? Not trying to be dismissive, just wondering in what circumstances it's a hindrance.
Should only be visible when you hover your mouse over the thread link.
Sometimes it pops up and covers the links to the pages and I have to move the mouse away and back quickly to click directly on a page. See the following:
Above you can see the thread and the links to page numbers
But then hover on down to click on a page, the bubble interferes with that view.
It's just one of those things that I would turn off if I had the option.
I would turn it off as well, the information provided is rarely useful and nearly always obstructive.
Agreed. For me, I never read what's in the bubble and I end up having to maneuver to read what I really want to read (titles and page numbers).
Agree as well. If turning it off is an option, I'd vote for that.
Agree. It doesn't bother me on my desktop, but I recall having issues with it on my folks IPad. I think it was when I was trying to zoom in to tap the terribly small "first new post in thread" icons.
I guess I'm the only one who doesn't mind it. In fact, I find it useful to preview a thread with a poor title to see if it's something I want to read.
+1, it's annoying.
More than me!
It's never bothered me. Sometimes I mouse over to see what the thread is about, but mostly the mouse is on the other side of the screen (to pick up 'last post'), so I never notice it.
So put me down as a 'don't care either way'.
Well, turns out this is an option. I can adjust the number of characters in the preview or disable it entirely. I've added a poll to this thread so people can vote on it and in a few days I change the setting accordingly.
You could disable it in your browser...
I find them useful at times (when I'm wondering what the heck some new thread is about), but annoying at other times (when just trying to scroll the page)
Best compromise I've come up with is to attempt to keep my mouse pointer just off the left edge of the list, so that it doesn't encounter any links when I scroll the page.
@Johan, where is the option to disable in browsers? I did a quick check in IE and Firefox and couldn't find it. Searched for tooltips and mouse over.
I'm trying to understand the circumstances under which they pop up unintentionally. That never happens to me when browsing on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone.
Ditto. That's why I'm in the 'don't care much' camp.
I do find them useful since they're only there when I want them.
