This is veering off-topic, but: Mozilla's quirks mode is only for features
that are necessary to prevent significant (top100) pages from being
seriously badly rendered. I have yet to see an important page where the
lack of tooltips is such a problem; all the pages that rely on them for
navigation are unusable anyway, since users won't know to look for
tooltips in the first place.
