So, hovers are proliferating across all sites. They've gotten so bad now that I can't do anything without stupid crap popping up covering up what I'm trying to do. Tooltips, navigation menus, videos starting on hover, you name it. It's GARBAGE user experience, and I can't understand why anyone thinks this is okay. They're popping up everywhere all the time, 99.9999% of the time when I don't want it. It makes complex sites like Amazon totally miserable to even try to use for someone like me who's easily distracted.

So, I desperately need a solution at this stage. The internet is a graveyard of sites I can't visit because they drive me up the wall and ruin my day.

Someone previously recommended adblockers for this, but I use three adblockers (like I said, easily distracted by garbage), and none of them kill hovers.

How do I make hovers stop activating content and instead ONLY work on-click. Thanks!

Pop-ups that open on hover are opened via CSS or JavaScript, so it isn't possible to block such pop-ups easily.

Note that your Mac OS should support the current Firefox release (88).

Any reason why you use Firefox 66 ?

Firefox 67 introduced some nasty problems, which I assume Firefox tried to correct with 68. In the interim, I returned to 66. By the time I decided to upgrade again, the Firefox interface had turned to absolute crap (IMO), and now I can't upgrade without losing all of my bookmarks it seems, so I'm stuck on 66.

I guess all we can do is hope this hover fad dies sometime before I throw my computer against a wall.
