    Turning off the mouse over preview***Solution!***

    Is there a way to turn off the mouse over preview of a thread... I find it annoying. I like to read the titles of the threads and if one interests me, I can click on it... but I don't like the pop up preview.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Chuck,

    I find it annoying too... I have turned it off, for now, and we'll see how the "masses" feel...

    Frank,

    That's when you move your mouse close to, or over the thread title and get the first xxx letters of the thread text displayed in a "pop-up" window. FW was set to show the first 150 letters of the first post...I set it now to show none.

    I like it! It often shows enough info for me to decide whether - or not - to open the message and read the whole thing. Please turn it back on.

    Jim,

    I edited this in at the same time you were posting...

    "Besides being annoying, IMO, sometimes the thread takes a different turn and the "preview" doesn't reflect at all where the thread is now focused. Also, how many times to do you need to keep seeing the same words..."

    I just use Firefox & the Cooliris mouse over option.

    It must be turned off for me here. I do notice that happening on some other forums. A tiny bit annoying but not a biggie for me.

    Greg, was/is there a time option on it? How long the mouse had to hover before the pop up window was displayed? If so a longer hover might be a good compromise for those that like it.

    I never used it but never found it annoying either.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
