Facebook Send Button Pop-Up turns transparent

While trying to add a Facebook Send button to my site via AddThis, I noticed that the pop-up from the Facebook Send button turns transparent when the mouse cursor hovers over it.

This is caused by a css rule that is making the a tag transparent. To fix it, add style="opacity:1;" to the a tag like this:

   <a class="addthis_button_facebook_send" style="opacity:1;"></a>

Original solution: AddThis forum thread

  1. Awesome! Thanks for this — my facebook “like” pop-up was overlapping a google map component and the change in opacity was causing the both of them to flicker back and forth on mouse-over! very lame, but this fixed the issue :) much appreciated.

  5. I spent a very frustrating hour trying to figure this one out. Then ran across your suggestion, which resulted in me saving many more hours of head-banging frustration. For that, I thank you most sincerely :)

  7. It is unsurprising. Truth be told, with regards to the land market of Dubai, it has been steady notwithstanding when different markets were experiencing the emergency. The slow development and the strength of the market make it simpler for financial specialists to anticipate the eventual fate of a property.
