    Default I hate the Pop-up boxes! Can I stop them?

    The ones where I drag my mouse around to scroll down the page, and each time it goes over a link/topic a box comes up with the first few lines of the first post...I hate this feature! Can it be disabled?

    I don't care for them either, so if someone knows how to disable them, it would be awesome!

    I guess I'm the odd ball here..lol I like the way you can get a general idea of the post without actually clicking on it.

    Default Yeah, but

    I find them a little annoying, too, but I get around it by having my mouse pointer in the Last Post date column while I'm scrolling down. That way, if I do see something that looks interesting, I can just move the pointer over to the topic and read the pop up. It is kind of nice to be able to do that without opening the thread .

    Still, no one's answered the question. I would dearly love to be able to turn them off - they're really annoying.

    No, they cannot be turned off on an individual basis.

    Did they get turned of because I am not seeing them today.

    Darn and I really liked being able to get the gist of a post before I opened it. Didn't really find them annoying.
