Nothing has changed since I started this thread.

I think they've compromised and changed the dropdown from appearing onfocus OR onhover to just onhover.

I'm happy as I don't use a mouse <opera fan> and am therefore hoverless.

I totally agree!

Er... no it hasn't sad

It's been really irritating me.

Well done Soup, it looks like the hovering has ceased.

If you need to put your cursor somewhere after you've clicked in order to prevent a pop up, there is something wrong.

What is the benefit of having them as hover links?

Is this when you go to click Threads Im On and end up clicking on something in the huge Pregnancy drop down that appears but you only realise after you've clicked?
If so - agree!

I meant while the page loads, obviously, so you're not over the link when it's finished.

Yes. Because MNHQ is going to change back something they just spent hundreds of pounds on because a few people don't like it.

I doubt they spent hundreds of pounds making them hover links rather than clickable ones hmm. Personally, I imagine most of the cost went into the actual links themselves and the designs of the boxes (which I have no problem with whatsoever).

Put your mouse halfway down the page and to the left.

That makes it really hard to click, say, the "threads I'm on" link at the top of the page! When a page loads after clicking that, the other links trigger.

Especially the pregnancy one, with the confused face.

Would like to take this opportunity to say how much I love my tablet. 99% of MN ishoos don't have the slightest bearing on it.

I am having no problem avoiding them.

It seems to be set so that after you click on a thread, most of the time your cursor ends up in the hover position when the thread opens, so most of the posts are covered until you move the cursor. I generally find hover menus quite useful but there are irritating.

Yes. Because MNHQ is going to change back something they just spent hundreds of pounds on because a few people don't like it.

Hell even if thousands of MNetters don't like, I imagine they won't change it back.

TOTAL pita I agree

Talkinpeace Sat 29-Jun-13 21:34:17

agree that those silly extra bits when I'm trying to click are pita

Sorry you're fed up/

I'm fed up with them popping up for no reason and it is ruining my MNing experience, even now they are less sensitive.

Is it really beneficial to have them as hover links
