The hover text box goes way to the right, off the right margin of the screen. A horizontal scroll bar appears at the bottom of the screen. You can't use the mouse to scroll or you lose the hover text, but you can use the right arrow. Maybe the text box can be changed to more height and less width?

Thank you.

    Same problem to report as OLinda, and on diary pages, there's often no text in the box when you hover over a diary title in the right-hand column. I'm attaching a screenshot. Meant to add that this occurs in both Firefox 6.0.2 and Safari 5.1 on a Mac running OS X 10.7.1 with the latest Java updates.

    For the additional problem you mention of no text in the box, a fix is in the queue. It is discussed here:

    It happens when a diary is started with an image rather than text.

    Thanks for the note. I'd figured that out through further experimenting but didn't go back to the ticket and mention it.

    I love that they have installed the hover text over the diaries list! However, I too am experiencing the same problem with text running off the right side of the screen.

    Hover text works decently on a regular computer, but not on an iPad. First click, it extends off the right margin and resizes the screen-which can force the link in question out of view. So, scroll up to see the link, and then try to perform the second click to open the diary; this often gets interpreted as "close the hover text" not open the link.

    We have disabled the hover text for mobile devices for the next release, which should help.

    Thanks! That should help immensely.
