Description Joel Natividad 2005-08-10 20:06:57 UTC
With the custom template, the mouseover popup no longer shows next to the field
in question.

It now shows up at the bottom of the page in FireFox 1.06.

What mouseover popup?
Comment 2 Joel Natividad 2005-08-11 14:15:42 UTC
Try it at 
Mouseover the fields and you'll see some help popups.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-08-12 04:18:45 UTC
Confirmed in Safari 2.0, Mac OS X 10.4.2
Comment 4 Dennis Lowell 2006-04-13 19:03:34 UTC
IE 6.0 handles the error but does not display a mouseover popup. IE logs 
this exception:

-Line: 45
-Char: 23
-Error: Object expected

Note: I was unable to find that URL using a normal path through the 
website. The cut and paste the example above has a parameter 'help=1'. 
However, I was able to find
format=advanced which appears to be the same form minus the error.

Check to see if you still have this problem. If not, bug can be resolved. 
If so, check to see if the URL I included causes the same error.

It's important to use the site navigation to get to a location as as 
scripts, method, parameters, and naming convention may change from time 
to time. A change in ayone of these can make a URL obsolete.

Works fine in Firefox 2.0 for me, but IE 7.0 same as previous comment
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2007-05-18 17:48:52 UTC
Now works in FF and Safari.

Pop-up help just doesn't seem to work in IE, even on it's not available, so upstream issue at that level.
