bwahahaa eat that E V I L box thing!
What? Are you sure it isn't just some stupid thing you've installed. I run Vista Business SP1 on my laptop and I've never had that happen.
I get it in Firefox in XP and I also get it when I run linux off USB sometimes.
I also run Firefox on my XP computer (like hell I'll ever use IE again...), still I haven't seen anything like this.
Well, it seems as though 'm not getting it as much now but when Instructables first updated I got it all the time. I think I even submitted a bug report.

Yeah, I already figured this out. It's a really annoying bug.

i have it too. another way is to run your mouse over the box, and once it comes up run it over the text. This makes the text stay put url go away.
