HOW DO I STOP THESE STUPID POP-UPS?!

I don't like this, I don't need this, it's obnoxious, distracting, in the way, often irrelevant, PREVENTS MOUSE CLICKS, and I'm not seeing how to prevent them without disabling inspections/validations...

I notice the message is duplicated on the right-side scrollbar area (with a little colored line), which is already OK enough, and similar to other editors like Eclipse which have handled errors/warnings/notices just great!

Hello,

You can disable the inspection in Settings | Editor | Inspections > PHP | Composer | Extension is missing in composer.json.

Your solution is only for the example I provided. Plus, I don't want to disable inspections or validations, just pop-ups.

Couldn't agree more -- STUPIDEST feature ever, especially because I can't stop it. Tried turning off all inspections but still get the damn "?" popups. I see that this has been a long standing complaint and the support people seem clueless as to understanding the problem. (Makes you wonder if they are not all using Eclipse to develop Intellij;-) Speaking of which, I'm on the verge of going back to Eclipse.

Please open Help > Find Action, type Registry, run it. Find ide.disable.editor.tooltips - set a checkmark against it. Restart IDE - you should no longer get inspection pop-ups.

I'm a little concerned at what else this disables:

It says "inspections etc"... so what other tooltips is this disabling?

I like tooltips; I want them on things I don't recognize or remember. However, tooltips popping up all over the code just because I happened to leave my mouse cursor in some spot, that triggers a hover pop-up about a function or variable or some other thing I'd rather activate manually, often just gets in the way of me reading code or clicking text, and is disorienting and inhibitive.

Please, I want to disable inspection hover pop-ups, have them be activated manually, and leave all of the other tooltips until I want to disable them.

According to the initial request for this feature, this is exactly what the option does: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-114803
