    Thread preview bubble

    Anyone know how to get rid of this? Is this a vBulletin feature?

    It is a VB feature. Don't know of any way of getting rid of it, but I wonder: why do you need it removed? Not trying to be dismissive, just wondering in what circumstances it's a hindrance.

    Should only be visible when you hover your mouse over the thread link.

    Sometimes it pops up and covers the links to the pages and I have to move the mouse away and back quickly to click directly on a page. See the following:

    Above you can see the thread and the links to page numbers



    Name:  bubble.jpg
Views: 200
Size:  150.0 KB

    But then hover on down to click on a page, the bubble interferes with that view.


    It's just one of those things that I would turn off if I had the option.

    I would turn it off as well, the information provided is rarely useful and nearly always obstructive.

    Agreed. For me, I never read what's in the bubble and I end up having to maneuver to read what I really want to read (titles and page numbers).

    Agree as well. If turning it off is an option, I'd vote for that.

    Agree. It doesn't bother me on my desktop, but I recall having issues with it on my folks IPad. I think it was when I was trying to zoom in to tap the terribly small "first new post in thread" icons.

    I guess I'm the only one who doesn't mind it. In fact, I find it useful to preview a thread with a poor title to see if it's something I want to read.
