It seems that sometime recently I began having problems where there is no text when I hover over text or links. Why have the box at all if it is going to be blank? What's happening?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Issues with tooltips not working properly have been reported to be caused by the Google Toolbar (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) You can check if there is an update available that fixes that issue.

Thanks! That worked. I forgot that I also noticed my Google toolbar was missing around the same time. An uninstall and reinstall did the trick!
