#17708 needs_information defect

URL preview stops working

After using TBB for a while, when you hover over a hyperlink, the URL stops showing in the bottom left (as it should/does in vanilla FF).

It's quite troublesome and can be very dangerous as it requires you actually click a link to see the URL if URL is not in the hyperlink.

Interesting. What do you mean with "for a while"? Could you give us some time frame here? Also, on which operating system are you experiencing this? And which Tor Browser version are you using?

I cannot say the timeframe for certain, but I'd say it happens after around 1-2hrs. It may also be due to having a lot of tabs open over that period of time, but I am not sure of the exact reason it happens (timeframe, tabs open or some other factor). Using the latest stable version on Linux x64.
