A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
If I set a tooltip on eg. a JTextField with HTML and img src for example "<html><img src=\"https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1145865357/openjdk_400x400.png\"></html>", then tooltip won't show anything

REGRESSION : Last worked in version 11.0.1

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Just set a tooltip on for example a Noneditable JTextfield with  "<html><img src=\"https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1145865357/openjdk_400x400.png\"></html>" and the image isn't show when mouse is over the textfield

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
I was expecting to have the image show in tooltip window, as it did in previous java versions eg. 11.0.1 or java 8 update 201
ACTUAL -
The image in tooltip isn't show when setting HTML tooltip:  "<html><img src=\"https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1145865357/openjdk_400x400.png\"></html>"

---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
import java.awt.BorderLayout;

import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JPanel;
import javax.swing.JTextField;
import javax.swing.ToolTipManager;
import javax.swing.WindowConstants;

public class TestTooltip {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		JFrame frame = new JFrame("Tooltip test");
		JPanel pane = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
		JTextField textfield = new JTextField("text with tooltip");
		textfield.setEditable(false);
		ToolTipManager.sharedInstance().setInitialDelay(100);
		ToolTipManager.sharedInstance().setReshowDelay(100);
		textfield.setToolTipText("<html><img src=\"https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1145865357/openjdk_400x400.png\"></html>");
		pane.add(textfield);
		frame.add(pane);
		frame.setSize(800, 600);
		frame.setLocationRelativeTo(frame);
		frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(WindowConstants.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);
		frame.setVisible(true);
	}
