    It would be great to change the behavior from hover to click for the profile menu to expand on the top admin toolbar. When moving a mouse to the top right of the screen to click the Update button for a post or page, more than half the time I accidentally hover over the profile link which then overlaps the update button and then I click. This results in a dialogue box being displayed asking if I want to leave the site and changes may not be saved. This seems like a minor annoyance, but I’ll bet there are many others out there that experience the same thing. Also, the profile/logout link is so rarely used by our content editors, the difference between two clicks vs. hover and click isn’t a big deal.

    Another way to address this could be to provide an option to universally have menus expand and collapse only on click vs. hover in the admin interface. It may also have the side affect of making it a bit more accessible for those with poor motor skills.
