So, the title pretty much states it all, but I will yet elaborate.

There's a small tooltip which floats up in the bottom left corner of the browser window when you hover a mouse over a link on a page. The address the link leads to shows up in the tooltip. However, if the link in question is in the bottom left corner of the webpage, the tooltip floats up right over it. Then it dissapears only to reappear a couple milliseconds later. This blinking persists; you can neither make out the address shown nor click the link. Pressing RMB several times shows the RMB menu for the link, which finally allows you to copy the link location and paste it into the address bar.

Try disabling the Redirect Remover extension if you have it. Disabling this extension worked for me allowing the address bar that shows up on the bottom left when hovering over a link to shift right in certain situations.

When I mouse over a link at the bottom left of a page, the textbox is at the right side of the page instead of the left side. I tried that with all the themes I use and it is the same behaviour, so it is probably not the theme that would mess that up.

Did you change the minimum length of that textbox to make it stretch over most of the width of the window?

Nope. Maybe some of the plugins did, where can I check that setting?

That tooltip should move automatically the the other site of the screen (left or right) if the link is close to the bottom of the screen.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

Eh, right, appears to be working in safe mode (shame on me, filed the problem from my work PC, where I don't have that much plugins installed, without checking if the problem's still there; updated the troubleshooting info). Is there per chance a way to find the source of the problem without manually turning off extensions till we find the one causing the erratic behavior? As you can see, I have quite a number of them.

There is not really a way to do that. You can disable half of the extensions, see if that helps, and if not, enable those and disable half of the remaining ones, and so on until you find the problem one. If the half you disabled did fix the problem, then enable half of those, and keep doing that until you isolate the problem one. Alternately, you could disable 10 at a time, and once you find the guilty group, then enable them one at a time until you have the problem again.

Yes, you're right. It's that extension which is causing it. Thank you!
