Problems with text that appears when hovering in Firefox

You know how when you hover over an image or a link, or even a form box, you'll get a little box of text that appears? Well, I get an empty box. Not sure what might be blocking that text from showing up, but it's really annoying.

"Try disabling all of your add-ons. If that doesn't work, reinstall FF.

Edit: Mark's comment pointed out this Google thread about the issue: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Toolbar/thread?tid=15f511df1aff2673

Just a head's up in case you're seeing blank tooltips in Firefox 3.5 (now available!): please uninstall and reinstall the latest version of Toolbar from the Toolbar homepage:

As a diagnostic warning, note that Internet Explorer (incorrectly) displays text in this box using "alt" attribute, whereas Firefox will use only the "title" attribute. If you're comparing the results of the two browsers this may be causing some confusion.
