You disagree with the facts here.  
That is quite understandable; 
I disagree with them as well, 
meaning I think this behavior is unacceptable.  
Sadly, that does not make the facts go away.

Do not abandon hope though; 
a rumor says it is going to be fixed in Firefoxá3.

I disagree. The most user friendly thing about Pixologic's Z-brush is  
that if you hold control before a tool-tip appears you get a MASSIVE  
and EXTREMELY HELPFUL tooltip (sometimes with images). It makes  
learning the software easier and faster. Saves you having to dig  
through the help file for instructions about the tool/menu item.
