Firefox doesn't display alt-text. Alt-text is meant to show if the image can't be displayed. If you want to see a tooltip on hover then that must be done with the title attribute.

Does anybody at Mozilla read this or is it just for venting frustrations?

Alt-text is NOT just for when the image can't be displayed. For instance, in my work I use a particular kind of colour palette. It used to be that when I hovered over the little square showing the colour, that the colour number would appear. It's the ONLY way to know what colour you're dealing with, in this case.

This used to be available in Firefox, but suddently it disappeared. This is forcing me to use Safari, which has this feature. But I prefer to work with Firefox.

This is very frustrating!!!

Greenhome, have you checked this setting?

If browser.chrome.toolbar_tips is set to false, modify it to true using about:config.

That should take care of your problem, I checked xkcd.com in Safari and the tooltip is the title attribute.

This will only help if the palette correctly uses the title (not alt) attribute.

If that doesn't help and you're just trying to get the color number, you might just want to grab a color picker addon like: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/271/

Good luck!

More info on alt vs title than you probably want to know, but if you're bored: http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/200412/the_alt_and_title_attributes/
