Custom HTML Widget Warning Tooltips Error

I am using Custom HTML widgets in the current version of WordPress, and I have noticed an error in the display of warning tooltips within the current version of Firefox.

When I mouseover a warning icon in the Custom HTML widget, the resulting tooltip displays beneath the editor pane, making the warning text unreadable.

The same warning tooltip appears correctly in the latest versions of Chrome and Edge.

I have not tested across themes, so for reference I am currently working within Front Page sidebars in a Genesis child theme. I have tested the same widget across Firefox, Chrome, and Edge, and only Firefox exhibits the described behavior.

Hi @JosefNT

Can you please also mention the Firefox version where you are facing the issue?

Unable to reproduce it on my side.

Sorry! I should have included that first. That may also answer the question of why it didn't work, as I forgot about having upgraded my FF to the Developer Edition.

Firefox Developer Edition 58.0b15 (64-bit)

I completely understand if the issue is isolated to the dev edition. I've just been using it for so long that it completely slipped my mind when considering possible points of failure.

Let me know if there's any additional information I can provide.
