I had a script in Opera which did this, and I had been waiting to see this in FF.
The ability to customize the tooltips/box as well as adding your own icons->extensions/protocols/etc. is a great feature.
Thanks a lot!
It help me know what，safely open link!I wise you update!Special thanks to you!
Really I wish FF had some of these installed by default, especially the "opens in new window" and PDF icons.
Has become much more reliable since my last rating.
Advanced settings is complicated without help.
Works well on FX4 Windows. But a bit confusable to set additional options. Pity there's no instruction on the author's website.
Actualice para Firefox 4.. ;P
Great in Firefox 3.x, but really needs to be upgraded for Firefox 4.
For me, the new versions of this addon never worked as well as 0.8.2.2, and I recommend installing this version and not the new ones.
To make it work on Firefox 3.6 go to about:config and set a new boolean extensions.checkCompatibility.3.6 to false. For details see:
I have used this addon for a long time and I've used it since it was first developed. This is one of the first addons I install when I have a new Firefox installation. I know if a link is a pdf file, opens in a new window, etc just from hovering over it.
Unfortunately only seems to work for me on 1 out of 10 pages I visit! Something to do with other extension conflicts? NoScript settings? Great idea but oh well.
Great addon.Know what the behind the links.
Testé et approuvé, très pratique. Merci beaucoup =)
Thanks for fix :)
Thanks for fix the problem of the preferences!!!

I have Firefox 3.6 spanish version.
Unable to install.
Download error - 228
Preferences not working (FF 3.6 spanish)
Preferences are broken. Locale is fr.
cant wait till you update it for 3.6
This is a great add-on. I actually prefer the tooltip display in the latest version. In the previous version the icon was always partially hidden by the cursor. Nice work!
new tooltip method is annoying!
unable to change some preferences - can de/select checkboxes, but changes are not saved even after FF restart.
on the file ext. settings page, there's options at the bottom that i cannot see - the UI is not tall enough (i use normal font sizes)
Very nice. If you don't like the tool-tips (as I don't), use the version here Version 0.8.2.2 — August 8, 2009 — 96 KB and see the comments against it. Fine with FF 3.5.5
Same as SWMartian
It was better months ago when icons were displayed beside the mouse cursor, not in tooltips. Tooltips have the hateful behavior to stay in place, not following the mouse, and often not hiding when someting else comes inbetween. Too bad.
I miss having this extension -- it used to work very well and was nice to have. Now that the extension uses tooltips, the alerts do not go away no matter what and are way too annoying. I can't use the old version because I also use auto-updater. Since auto-updater is much more useful, I've regrettedly had to disable Link Alert. I keep hoping that it will get fixed, but alas...
