Seamonkey 2.0, support for html attributes 'ALT' and 'TITLE'

Since I upgraded to Seamonkey 2.0 it looks like I don't any more get 
'tool tips' texts when I move the mouse over links having the html 
attributes 'TITLE' and/or 'ALT' filled. This worked with pre 2.0 
Seamonkey releases. Do I miss something or did I encounter a bug/feature?

An example is new score contribution date information in WIMA (see my 
signature):

<img src='/Icons/new.gif' border='0' alt='2009/12/05' title='2009/12/05' 
 ><a name="Gebhardi"></a>

When using FireFox I do see the text '2009/12/05' when I move the mouse 
over the 'NEW' icon at 
(http://icking-music-archive.org/ByComposer/Knuth.php#Gebhardi. But 
Seamonkey does not display anything.

Works fine for me in 2.0 -
Check  Edit/Preferences/Appearance and make sure 'Show Tool Tips' box is
checked.

Thanks - this is what I was missing.

Maybe this ought to be default enabled.

Is there a way to adjust the duration of the tooltips?

(BTW: I can't find the about:config item corresponding to the "Show 
Tooltips" setting.)

Not in 2.0, but in a future version there should be the option to have
them display as long as the cursor is stationary over the element.
It's already in the Firefox 3.6 betas.

There's a 'No Tooltip Timeout' extension for current versions of Fx,
but I don't know if it can work with SeaMonkey.

Sorry, I dunno.

Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications.  You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.

Thanks! I got it to work with SM. Here's how:
1) force its installation
- in about:config, create a new string general.useragent.extra.firefox and
   set it to Firefox/3.5
- in about:config set extensions.checkCompatibility to false
- install from the above link

2) go to <profile_folder>/extensions/notooltiptimeout@extensions.geckozone.org/
- edit chrome.manifest and change the first line to:

overlay	chrome://navigator/content/navigator.xul	chrome://notooltiptimeout/content/notooltiptimeoutOverlay.xul

- edit install.rdf and add this, just past one of the other
   "targetApplication" section: (I think this step is not required to make
   it work but that suppresses the warning about incompatibility in Add-on
   Manager, and one should then be able to revert
   extensions.checkCompatibility to true)

         <!-- SeaMonkey -->
         <em:targetApplication>
                 <Description>
                 <em:id>{92650c4d-4b8e-4d2a-b7eb-24ecf4f6b63a}</em:id>
                 <em:minVersion>2.0</em:minVersion>
                 <em:maxVersion>2.*</em:maxVersion>
                 </Description>
         </em:targetApplication>

3) restart SM and enjoy!

I hope this helps someone!

This isn't how you should go about things. It's a bit pointless when you 
tell the reader in step two how to make the extension compatible. You 
don't even tell the reader to undo the changes done in step 1 afterwards.

The better way is to download the .xpi file (right-click > save target 
as...), open it with your favourite archive program (eg WinZip), and 
then edit the files in it as mentioned in step 2. Then open the .xpi 
file with SeaMonkey, and install it.

It's not pointless when one doesn't know another method to download it. 
When you left click, you get a popup suggesting you should try Firefox. 
How is one supposed to guess that right clicking will download it 
nevertheless?

Thanks for giving the right way.

I then contacted the author and he made these changes to the addon, which 
should now be compatible "out of the box" with SM.

Go to:
