Hey all,

     I recently updated to Safari 6.0.2, and every time I try the look up feature with Lion, the box pops up for about 3 seconds and then fades- without me doing anything. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Or more importantly, does anyone know how to fix it. If I could, I'd go back to Safari 6.0.1, as I'd experienced no problems with that build, but I don't know whether it's possible or not to downgrade to a previous version of Safari 6.


     Additionally, I was wondering if anyone else noticed that Apple planned the 'look up' feature to be quickly executed with a Three-fingered double tap. However, in my upgrading to Safari 6 I was no longer able to do that. The only was I could access this feature (that I use often) was through right clicking a word and selecting, "Look up (word)".
