I can easily reproduce this one but can't figure out how to defeat it.. open to suggestions.

I found several fixes for this one, on FF4, not yet tested on others, but should work.

The quickest and easiest fix would be to add "keepAlive: true" to the tipTip options in CAppUI.class.php, line 1143. It fixes the flashing, but, to make the tooltip disappear one needs to hover in and out of the tooltip.

A second fix would be to set the edgeOffset option to 8, also in CAppUI.class.php, line 1143. This fixes the flashing, but, only on the System Configuration page and not on the Modules page, on the reordering icons. To make it work on that page too, all those "span" elements which are used to show the tooltip, need a "float: left;" styling, which I'm too scared to do because of IE and floats and whatnot.

A third possible solution (possible because this works currently only in my brain, can't guarantee it'd work for real) would involve some hacking on the enter and exit functions of the tipTip plugin mixed up with some timeouts. I'll save this if none of the above 2 solutions gets accepted.

Pedro, any suggestions/ideas here?

I can confirm that the problem is still present under V3.0-pre Rev 2117 but only in FF7.01. The problem is not present in IE8.0.6001.
One thing observed. In FF the tool tip is present under the mouse for the move down functions (problem) and is to one side for the move up functions (no problem.
In IE the tool tip is always to one side (not under) the mouse.
I'm guessing that there may be an issue between the mouse position and the tool tip for this function in FF.

W2P Server Ubuntu 8.04 LTS 64bit, php V5.3.2 , mysql V5.1.5
Client 1 - Windows XP Pro SP3
Client 2 - Windows 7 SP1
