In Windows 7, I'll occasionally get floating text/info boxes that won't disappear from the screen after popping up, even if the program they appeared from is downsized or even closed.
Why does this happen, and how do I fix without having to reboot?
For example, in the attached example below, these info boxes appear if the mouse hovers over the respective buttons in Firefox. But the boxes haven't disappeared, and are still seen even when Firefox is minimized (shown appearing on top of a Windows explorer folder).
This issue is program independent, and not just tied to Firefox.
