    Is there a way for the user to change the sensitivity of "popup" previews of each thread (the yellow square with text in it, similar to tooltips) when in the web browser view of the forum?

    While I appreciate their usefulness, I would much prefer to reduce the sensitivity of the popup area so, for example, my cursor needed to be directly over the text of the title for the popup to open, rather than just anywhere in the horizontal row of the table. As it is now, the popups tend to contribute to a raging headache.

    I'm afraid there are no customizing controls for that. It's simply the way vBulletin does it. :doubt:

    I keep the pointer to the left side of the screen until I want to read a "popup".

    Good idea, Ron -- although I have to say that keeping the cursor on the left sure seems counter-intuitive to my right-dominant brain :cautious:
