Fairly often, tag hover popups refuse to go away when I move my mouse off the tag or the tag moves due to some other event: (Edit: When it's been moused over)
I'd certainly like this to be fixed, but it seems to me it'll probably happen occasionally anyway. I currently use Firefox 6. Edit: By "fixed" I now mean for the popup to disappear if the tag does, like when I inline edit, as in the screenshot.
My real request is an 'x', perhaps in the upper or lower right corner, allowing me to close the popup:
This method is just a suggestion, but I would really like some way to dismiss the popup, as I often want to be able to read or type something underneath it
, and as things are now I have to navigate away from the page and return.
Edit: The first answer points out this will happen if you accidentally or intentionally move the mouse over the tag, and that moving over any tag should clear it.
This will still often require that I scroll elsewhere on the page to remove it (for example, when I edit a question with inline-editing, as in the screenshot, when it fails to disappear with the tag).
Also, are there any situations where there is only one tag on a page? In that case, you would still need to navigate away once you've moused-over the hover popup.It appears that most of the time, mousing over the same tag will work. So, as long as there is any tag on the page you won't have to navigate away, but inline editing still makes this a pain as it moves the tags. I also still occasionally am unable to make it disappear by mousing over the any tag, but this is a somewhat separate issue.
Final Edit: Fixed as of 2011-8-14.
Post-Final Edit: Occasionally, the popup still doesn't disappear when I move the mouse away from it. However, so far, moving the mouse back over it and away again has always cleared it.
