    There;s a LOG in/ Join box on the top right on an non-logged in page.
    Beneath that there is a magnifying glass.

    On a normal page the (user panel: inbox, alert etc) options are right below the "caracature"

    So, when not logged in, you have to move the mouse quickly to get to the login screen. If you move slowly all bets are off.

    The LOG-in options should appear just below the orange title bar.

    Firefox 18 and 42. Linux 12.04 LTS OS.

    Will work on screen shot. I don;t do it often.

    What is the width of your screen? When Firefox (42) is stretched full screen does the same issue occur?
    Could you also try viewing in Private Browsing mode (just to make sure you aren't using an old CSS file)

    Thanks

    I had that little annoyance...and it magically disappeared some weeks ago. Vista, Firefox
    I assumed somebody fixed it because I don't see it any more.
    I guess I was wrong.:confused:

    I saw it dissapear too. It's the orange theme. Tried with private window and the behavior is the same.

    I found the key. It happens at a particular screen width. It does not happen at full and half screen. When I have about 1 to 1.5" of screen available, the problem is there.

    ps, this site had some difficulty recognizing my log-in 2 days ago. As usual, it was fixed in less than an hour. This is the sort of thing I don't usually post because I assume temporary glitches are a normal part of maintaining a website.

    Here's the pictures you asked for:

    At 100%, this is the normal log in, No gap between orange bar and "Log in"

    When the browser is about 75%

    When the browser window is about 75% the screen width, the magnifying glass appears between
    LOG IN/JOIN and the actual LOG IN/Join AAC/Sign in.../ Menu.

    Sorry about the lousy pics. I used th NIMBUS Firefox add in to take them. It's also hard to take a non-static webpage. i.e. at a mouse click.
    That was my major issue.
