I'm using Firefox 1.5 on OSX. Whenever I move the mouse over a button or link in the toolbar, a tooltip pops up. This tooltip can be very annoying. I'm not talking about the tooltips for images (alt- or title-text in a <img>-tag), but the tooltips outside the content area. If they popup after 5 seconds, that would be okay, but the appear to soon. Is there a way to disable them, e.g. in the about:config?

Hi grexx,
If you would like to turn the toolbar tips off, simply
1. type about:config in the firefox url bar, and hit enter, this displays all firefox settings
2. look for "browser.chrome.toolbar_tips" (without the quotes)
3. double click that line to change true to false.
4. close the window and you are all done.
