[Big Report] Race condition when loading tooltips
Return to board index
I'm using Chrome Version 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows 10.
Sometimes, when quickly moving my mouse over multiple links in quick succession, the last link I hover over will have the tooltip of the previous link I hovered over. I think this is because of a race condition: I hover over link 1, it starts loading tooltip 1, I move to link 2, it starts loading tooltip 2, but if tooltip 2 finishes loading before tooltip 1 (maybe because tooltip 2 is cached), it'll place tooltip 1 over link 2 once tooltip 1 finishes loading.
Nice details, thanks. Are you seeing this when loading tooltips on a 3rd party site, or somewhere on Wowhead? Can you give an example page, or an example series of links?
