Default Thread previews not showing

Over the last week or so, I've noticed that on my main PC, the little thread preview popups aren't showing up when I hover my cursor over a thread title. On my PC at work and on my laptop, they do show up.

Any idea how I might have turned this feature off, and/or how to fix it?

For more info, I use Windows Vista Home Premium, Firefox 23.01.

The thread previews work in IE9, but not Firefox.

Never mind. I figured it out. I have an add-on that allows me to keep Google Toolbar for Firefox even though it is no longer supported. That's causing the issue.

I realized that it wasn't just happening on Snopes, so I did some troubleshooting I should have done from the start.

Disabling add-ons one at a time located the culprit.
