Description

In the Chrome browser, when adding a link to text in the TinyMCE editor, the visibility of the box and button for applying the link flickers at a high frequency when the apply button is moused over. It is impossible to insert the link into the text. This does not happen in Firefox or IE Edge.

By a process of elimination this appears to be a CSS problem that is in style sheets loaded by wp-admin/load-styles.php. If 'common' is removed the flickering stops but the box disappears when the mouse point is on the edge of the button. If 'admin-bar' is removed the flickering stops altogether.

The HTML file I used to test this problem can be seen at http://keyfutures.biz/test-wp/admin-test.html
