Pop up Windows

Post by xylaphone » Wed Oct 16, 2013 7:32 am

When viewing say TV listings in Chrome when you hover the cursor over the program title a
small highlight box comes up telling you details of the program. I cant get it to do this in Slimbrowser is there
a way to enable this feature please.

I've just tried it on this site http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/ and the programme details come up when I point with the mouse. I haven't changed any settings, so perhaps it's a site, rather than browser issue (SB v7.00.057).

This is one of the ones I'm having problems with :-
http://www.tvguide.co.uk/default.asp?thisday=&thisTime=
when you point to the program its not bringing up the description
I'm also getting this with some other programs I use.

Doesn't work for me either, so it looks as if it's an incompatibility with that site.

As you say, it's okay with Chrome, and I've just tried it with IE, which is also okay, so not the Trident rendering engine...Hmmm

OK thanks for having a look for me, I have only just installed Slimbrowser (I got fed up with Chrome) and
was not sure I'd set up the options properly. This is only really a minor issue, overall I'm impressed with
Slimbrowser.
