I was looking for a couple of hours how to inspect a JQuery tooltip in firebug. A :hover tooltip is not a problem. But a mouseover-mouseout tooltip was not possible to catch.

Stackoverflow answers were too complicated or didn't work.

And finally it turned out to be very easy.

  1. Inspect element in Firebug
  2. Select the "Event" tab to the right
  3. Disable the mouseoutevent

Now when the mouse is gone from the element, the tooltip stays. Can be inspected as any other element via FireBug.

Here is a small video:
