Hovercards: occasional single flicker for cards that overlap with the link (edge-case)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


See attachment 15555 for video.

To reproduce, bring your pointer down from above the link so that the Hovercard appears with the arrow touching/overlapping the link ( ), then move the pointer up and down around the area-of-intersection (near where the hyperlink-underline appears)

Seen in Firefox and Chrome, on Linux.
Not reproducible on Windows 7 or MacOS, according to Eduard Braun and Prateek Saxena.

Possibly the (discussed elsewhere) changes to the default timing (from 150ms to 500ms), will help resolve this.

Version: unspecified
Severity: minor
