Description

On Issue page, if there are some notes, every note has its own title, like "Updated by USERNAME about 1 month ago".

If hover "about 1 month ago" with mouse, there is HTML title (hovering tooltip) with absolute date of this note.

I ask an option to turn relative-style "about 1 month ago" titles into absolute-style "2015-06-09 16:56" titles by default. So admin (or even user for himself) could switch between this two modes.

I'm sorry if there is already such functionality, but I didn't find it.

Almost the same result can be achieved using some custom CSS that would change every individual datetime link to activity pages, so that these lines will be shown (note that I use parentheses to indicate a link), instead of like this:

Updated by (USERNAME) (about 1 month) ago
now like the following:
Updated by (USERNAME) ([2015-06-09 16:56] about 1 month) ago

See the Task History Updated Dates thread in the forums for the details.

This code

a[href*="activity"][title*=":"]:before {
  content: ' [' attr(title) '] ';
}
used to provide a mostly acceptable workaround, but in Redmine 4.1.1 with jQuery title, hovering the dates has a very bad flickering effect. :(

This may work in application.js:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('a[href*="activity"][title*=":"]').prepend(function() {
    var ret= '['+this.title+'] ';
    this.removeAttribute("title");
    return ret;
  });
});

Relative time should only be an option, though.
