    Can someone out there tell me how to disable that little floating toolbar that pops up whenever your cursor hovers over an image or something. I don't even know what this thing is called (so I couldn't do an effective search), but I've never used it and I find it to be quite annoying.
    If you're not sure what I'm talking about, it has 8 little icons in a "toolbar" of sorts, including: Save to local disk; Add the server to the AD blacklist; Zoom in; Zoom out; Copy URL to the clipboard; Open in New Window; Picture Viewers/Editors; Send as an e-mail.
    Anyway, it's a little trick that I'd like to learn, so any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks:)

    Thanks for your response Blink182

    I followed your instructions that would work for IE, but unfortunately it didn't solve the problem for the Avant Browser. However, your post gave me an idea of where to look and I was able to remove it anyway.

    So for anyone using Avant:

    -Tools
    -Avant Browser Options...
    -Miscellaneous (left panel)
    -Uncheck the 3 "Floating toolbar" options near the bottom

    ...and that should do it.

    Can't believe I never figured that out before.:eek:
