This is not really a great issue: I was using Firefox 3.6.13 and I noticed the tooltip is near the upper left corner of Firefox also if "caret" is selected.
I know. See in Develop / News, I explained the problem there.
But I am interested to know the applications where it works or does not work, I would add the list in the doc.
I set the tooltip position to Caret. In the following apps I have till now observed 'wrong' behaviour.
- IE 8.0:
- Tooltip is positioned correctly when the caret is in the address bar or search field.
- When the caret is on the page (for example in the text area that I'm typing in now) the tooltip is placed in the top-left corner of the page
- In OpenOffice Writer 3.2.0 the tooltip is positioned neer the File menu
The same behavior with jEdit.
