I apologize, your correct, i was not aware of the option to hide the icons, you are also correct that there is a bug in this feature.

basically, it is an issue with using the css :hover pseudo class and iframes. Both Google and Stumble Upon use iframes for their buttons which don't behave correctly with the hover.

I have logged this as a bug and we will probably correct it by using a javascript onclick method for showing and hidding the buttons. you can add this to your page by editing the wasocial.css file and commenting the hover method:

/*.wasocial:hover .share {

add the following script code just before the </head tag:

<script type="text/javascript">
function toggleSocial() {
var socialElem = document.getElementById('share');
if( == 'block') { = 'none';
} else { = 'block';

edit the share div tag:

<div class="share">

to include an ID:

<div class="share"  id="share">

and edit the link:

<a href="#"><img src="../webassist/social/icons/greyEarth.png" align="absmiddle" class="share_icon" />&nbsp;share</a>

to call the toggleSocial function on click:

<a href="#" onClick="toggleSocial();"><img src="../webassist/social/icons/greyEarth.png" align="absmiddle" class="share_icon" />&nbsp;share</a>

Google + only support IE 8 and above, they do not support the Google + buttons in older versions of IE
