*evil laugh* You do look at the mouse-over text, don't you?

I use Firefox so I don't think it works. I sometimes catch it just before the picture loads, but I get like, a second! Lol. So if it's longer than three or four words... nuh uh.

Ack -- no, the mouseover text works in IE, but I've never managed to get it to work in Firefox. There's a way you can view it in the code, though:

Hit Control + U to open a window showing the HTML source coding.
Scroll down till you spot the date on the left side. (12:00 7th May, for example)
Skip the block beginning 'td valign="top"
Look at the block beginning 'a href="http://pics.livejournal.com ' etc.
Scroll right to follow that line, and you should see the alt text.

That sounds...complicated. I'll just switch to IE for this comm! Heh!

It IS complicated, and it's a pain in the arse. But look at it this way -- open this site in IE, and you'll be able to go back over a year and read all the Sekrit Messages! That makes you one of the Cool Kids, right?

The first one (in sequence) to use mouseover text was this one:

Titles in Firefox

Install the LongTitles plug-in for Firefox from the Mozilla site. It's free. ;-) LiveJournal doesn't play nice with Firefox anyway, so I also use the IETabs add-on - it allows me to use IE within Firefox to render pages that don't work well with the Mozilla engine.

Re: Titles in Firefox

Aha! Lizzie rules!

Actually, the LongTitles plug-in doesn't cause the alt text to appear in mouseover, but the Popup ALT Attribute does.

I LOVE having a geeky sister!

Re: Titles in Firefox

I think the problem the OP was describing is that the titles vanish too quickly to be readable - this is an old, well known bug in Firefox. In addition, Firefox doesn't wrap long titles - it truncates them (at 23 characters, I think). The LongTitles add-on addresses both of these problems. I wasn't able to view popup ALT text reliably on any web pages until I installed it.

Re: Titles in Firefox

My current version of Firefox -- just installed and all new and shiny -- won't even install LongTitles; it says it's intended for older versions, and that the bug has been fixed. Well. Isn't that special.

Re: Titles in Firefox

That's why I stayed with Firefox 2 - in spite of the security problems. I'm not sure how many of my 17 plug-ins will still work...
