[JIRA 6.0.8 BUG] How to disable the persistant keyboard shortcut hint?

The keyboard shortcuts hint pop-up is getting mighty frustrating. It literally appears every time I look at an issue...

Keyboard shortcuts Hint popup

Sure, keyboard shortcuts are nice - I don't want to disable them, but this hint is getting on my nerves! Can't find the "Disable Hints" checkbox anywhere!

This is JIRA Standalone v6.0.8

Same here.

FYI, there are two separate bugs filed with Atlassian on this issue (the first shows the actual cause...it's getting a 404 error when trying to POST to the 'suppressTips' REST endpoint):

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-34837

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-34832

You may wish to add yourself as a watcher to these issues. Hopefully Atlassian will provide a response or fix soon, as it is pretty annoying.

Thanks Scott - glad to know I'm not the only one. I was starting to think it was a problem I caused by doing something wrong in my recent JIRA upgrade!

Fully agree, this is really getting on my nerves :-P

Can't create an account, using one from bugmenot.

If you've got Greasemonkey, you can write a userscript to do it:

var head = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0];
var style = document.createElement('style');

style.innerHTML = '#focus-shifter-tip { visibility: hidden; }';
head.appendChild(style);
