What happens if you close the browser or switch to another application?

What Browser? Are you on a desktop or laptop? If laptop are you using the touchpad or a mouse when it happens?

Does this happen on other sites with say drop down menus or previews?

Try two things to get a handle on the situation, see if you have the same problem in IE. Boot Firefox into safe mode and see if it is still an issue.

Run "firefox -safe-mode" Then just continue to safe mode, don't make any permanent changes yet. Then test it out.

The Run prompt may be found under the startmenu, or under accessories depending on your version of windows.

First guess if it happens in IE, it sounds like it could be a PS mouse issue or possibly a Javascript issue. Have you recently made any changes with Java?

If the safe mode works you likely have a conflict with an addon, extension or problem with something like Cool Iris??? May need to disable your addons then enable one at a time and look for a newer version. I would first look at Cool Iris if you have it installed and check the settings to use a different control key if you have it set to pull up on hover. Maybe be causing the conflict. I use the CTRL+SHFT+HIGHLIGHT.
