Org links already have tooltips out of the box. You can also display the
tooltip in the echo area by pressing <C-h .> (`display-local-help').

If you want to try the code from my first post, please replace the
`my-org-fn-make-tooltips' function with this new version, which is much
simpler and doesn't have time-consuming issues to create or update

(However, I find the function I put in my second post more useful (for
my use case: I don't use the mouse very much).

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defun my-org-fn-make-tooltips ()
    (org-element-map (org-element-parse-buffer) 'footnote-reference
      (lambda (ref)
	(let* ((label (org-element-property :label ref))
	       (label-from (org-element-property :begin ref))
	       (label-to (org-element-property :end ref))
	       (def (org-with-wide-buffer
		     (org-footnote-goto-definition label)
		     (let* ((e (org-element-context))
			    (from (org-element-property :contents-begin e))
			    (to (org-element-property :contents-end e)))
		       (buffer-substring-no-properties from to))))
	       (tooltip def))
	  (add-text-properties label-from label-to
      nil nil))

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
