FF 22.0, Win 7. Don't know when this started but when i hover the mouse over a bookmark (in my bookmark display) it displays the incorrect name and location text. It is displaying the info for another bookmark. It does display the correct info for the bookmarks on the Bookmarks Toolbar.

This was a bug in Firefox 22 that is fixed in Firefox 23.

Option #1 - wait for Firefox 23 to release next week (officially scheduled to release on August 6th)

Option #2 - install the beta test version of Firefox 23 now from the main beta page

Option #3 - change your layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.0 as noted above (however, if you like the font sizes in Firefox as they are, I don't recommend doing this)


Reference to the fixed bug: 890374 – incorrect tooltips in the sidebar when interface are scaled. Please do not comment on closed bugs. There's no way to hurry the fix along any faster!
