Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery UI project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket. This works fine for me -

I figured out why I was getting the issue I described (double initialization of a ui-icon element).

However, while trying to duplicate this issue on jsFiddle, I discovered another related bug with the tooltip/dialog elements.

Please note that when you click the pencil (edit) button, and there is a link in the dialog box, and the link is the first element with a "tab index", it gets highlighted by default causing the tooltip to display.

This is also an issue when you have a tooltip on a link to downloadable content (for example: a csv file) because after you click on the link and the "save/open" dialog comes up, the link is still highlighted so the tooltip displays until you click elsewhere on the page.

Giving focus to the first focusable element is intended behavior of the dialog widget. If you need to set focus to another element use the

event to change it -

I don't really see the fact that the tooltip doesn't go away when the browser's "Save As" dialog comes up as a problem. The tooltip could provide context on what the file is that could help in dealing with the dialog. If you really need the tooltip to go away under these circumstances you could attach a

event to the link and explicitly close it.
