Internet Explorer title text duration setting?

Postby The Boz » Wed Feb 26, 2014 7:32 am UTC

Help! I need help! I am at work, desperate to read up on some xkcd, but I'm limited to Internet Explorer 9. The display duration of the title text window is really short, and it's incredibly frustrating to have to move the mouse away and back every time it just disappears mid-sentence so that it reappears. I've tried to google for a solution, but can't seem to find anything useful. How the hell do I extend the duration of the title text window?

I don't know of a way to change the tooltip timeout in IE, but if it's just xkcd that's causing you problems you can go to the mobile version of the site, since that has a different way of showing that text that won't time out on you...

Code: Select all

enum ಠ_ಠ {°□°╰=1, °Д°╰, ಠ益ಠ╰};
void ┻━┻︵​╰(ಠ_ಠ ⚠) {exit((int)⚠);}

The thought has crossed my mind, but SubNormality is also affected :(

Are you allowed to add the developer toolbar? In that case you can just inspect the element to read the title-text at ease.
Another work-around would be to view the page source and search for "title=".

or use my trusty bookmarklet:

Code: Select all

javascript:(function()%7Bvar%20D=document,i,f,j,e;for(i=0;f=D.images%5Bi%5D;++i)if(f.title!=%22%22)%7Bvar%20x=D.createElement(%22div%22),s=x.style;s.color=%22Black%20%22;s.background=%22yellow%20%22;x.innerHTML=f.title;f.parentNode.insertBefore(x,f.nextSibling);%7D%7D)();
