    Oddly enough, I can't get it to appear on Safari but I did get one in Firefox when clicking the Reply button. :eek:

    In the Terminal, type:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitShowsURLsInToolTips 0
    
    Then press Enter. You will need to restart Safari for the change to take place.
