Steps to reproduce
When there is a link in the bottom-right of a webpage, and a user tries to hover over the link, then the URL tooltip occludes the link and the user can’t click that link.
The user has to first click the tooltip to close it, and then without moving the mouse at all has to click the link again. If the mouse is moved, then the tooltip reappears.
What should happen:
The URL tooltip should move to the right side of the screen when the pointer moves towards the bottom-left.

The author of the bug report made a mistake in his first sentence, he said "bottom-right", but I think he meant “bottom-left” as that is where the tooltip pops up.
It is now March 21, 2017 and it has been over seven months to fix what would seem a fundamental aspect of a web browser, the ability to click on a link!
This issue still exists in Edge 41.16299.15.0 - This is easy to replicate and really shouldn’t take too much 'investigation’! Back to Chrome for now!
I just tested in Microsoft Edge 42.17134.1.0 (April Win 10 Update).
It works - IF the hovered element is at the bottom.
URL Tooltip for elements NOT at the bottom is displayed at bottom.
New behaviour: But tooltip for elements at bottom are displayed ABOVE the element. So the hovered element is not hidden by the tooltip anymore.
