User tools hover pane disappears very easily
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When using the site in one column mode there is a user icon in the top right. Hovering that icon opens a pane with tools for the current user. Accessing those tools requires a very precise mouse motion that stays exactly between the left and right borders of the icon. Moving even slightly out of that area immediately closes the pane.
A more tolerant behavior with a timeout and/or extended movement regions would be desirable.

See attached video as an example.

Fixed by making more of a handle for nojs, and using js click otherwise. Hurrah?
