Hi All,

Why I am not able to see the tool tip for buttons like "send new private massage","Edit/Delete Post" and others in saloon using Firefox while I can see them in IE.
while "recent posts"->"show my recent posts" is working fine with both.
I tested with Google also and if you hover on Google icon it will show "go to Google home page" both in case of Firefox and IE.
Is this sth to do with my Firefox setting ?

What you're seeing with "recent posts" is an acronym; you can recognize them by the dotted line under the text that triggers it.

The ones that don't show up in Firefox are alt tags for images. Those are supposed to be shown if the image itself can't be loaded. The fact that IE shows them even though the image is present could be considered a bug or at the least non-standard-compliant behavior.
