When you hover over thread topics (see image), are these classified as ballon tips? Regardless of the answer, is it possible to make these last longer? I am from CA-NA-DA ayyyyyyy...(Blame The Simpsons for that last line, not me).

Good to know, but they only last for about 2 secs for me.

Actually, what you are asking about does not last as long as you keep the mouse over them. On all systems I checked (3) it lasts for about 5-10 seconds. It is a guess on my part, however I would think there is a registry entry you can change to make it last longer.

Seems like I remember when I was taking an online class on web page building, it was called a mouse over. Rather than changing something in the registry, I think it would have to be some change in the html coding or after looking at the page source, the java script. It's been a long time since I coded webpages manually. I now use Front Page.
So much easier and faster!

I don't know what the difference is, but on my system (PIII 450, Win 98 SE, IE6 or Opera 7.51), the ballon tip remains as long as I hover perfectly stationery over it. If I move even slightly, it goes away...

I have XP. Do you have XP? Maybe thats the reason if you don't.

For what it's worth I get about 5 seconds before the "tip" disappears (WinXP)

Meh. the balloon tips hang around for about 5-I don't know how many seconds (lost patience with waiting) on my PC. It's running Windows XP as well, so I dunno.
