I am using Eclipse Kepler on Ubuntu 14.04.

When I mouse-over a method or a class, I am able to see the javadoc in the hovers window. However, the toolbar at the bottom of the hovers window is missing (the one which has buttons to navigate to the source of a class or method for example).

In the Java->Editor->Hovers, the Source is mapped to Shift. If I press Shift before mouse-over, the source opens in the hover window itself. However, I'd like it to open in another Eclipse tab, which I am unable to do because the toolbar itself is missing.

Googling has not helped so far. All my settings seem to be fine. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling eclipse as well. But nothing has worked so far.

Holding Ctrl and then hovering the mouse over the element will give you
a hyperlink to the element. Click on the element and it will be opened
in a new tab.
