I'm using the latest version of Firefox, on windows 7.

Same here. I'm using Firefox as well and I want to log out but I can't because the menu disappears once I take my mouse off the prof pic at the top right corner.

edit: managed to log out by navigating with the arrow keys but it's still annoying

Agreed with the above 2 posts. Same here. Latest version of Firefox on Windows 7.

Seems to be a firefox-specific issue - the search bar overlapping the drop down menus also seems to regularly result in the drop-down menu closing, which considering how they work is merely a side effect of the search bar appearing on top.

Hopefully this will be fixed quickly - in the meantime though other browsers such as chrome work fine if necessary.

@harry_james_pot: At least you get that. I don't even get a menu.

Not had one for weeks :(

@klunt_bumskrint: what browser and os are you on?

Also, I'll get a quick fix in for the drop down behind the search shortly

Same thing happens to me, I checked here to see if anyone else had the problem. I use Firefox too. Must be an issue with this browser because this problem isn't present on Chrome.

@stylyy: I get the problem on Firefox and Chrome, OS is Win 8.1 64bit

Edit: Just tried on my HTPC in the living room which it Windows 7 and it works fine, maybe it's a 8.1 issue

It's not happening on Chrome on my 8.1 laptop. Here's a pic:

Hmmm....maybe it's a "my computer issue"

This is happening to me as well on Firefox with Windows 7. The menu disappears when you hover over it.

Same problem with me too. Never noticed how much I utilized the function until it's been ripped from my grasp.

Latest FF, Win7.

Same problem, on another OS/Browser config...

Kubuntu 12.04/Firefox 27.01

Also happening (at home) on Win 7/Firefox 27.01

Both 64-bit systems.

@stylyy Just tried IE and it works perfectly on my PC whereas Chrome and Firefox don't display the menu at all. Weird.

@stylyy Has that fix gone in? Only asking as now I'm getting the search bar problem (in IE9/Vista), when I previously wasn't.

#16 Posted by kitty (114978 posts) -

I was getting this on the newest firefox. Upon checking about 5 mins ago it seems to be fixed. Though I can't say that it's still not a problem on other browsers.

#17 Edited by dab198 (3914 posts) -

Fixed again now for me too, so someone must be fiddling behind the scenes...

#18 Posted by stylyy (142 posts) -

Sorry, I was making some changes that may have messed with some other browsers for a quick second but a fix should be out and good to go now. If any of you are still experiencing anything, hit me up.

#19 Posted by Doolz2024 (9621 posts) -

Back to normal for me.

#20 Posted by harry_james_pot (11160 posts) -

Yep, it's working fine now. =)

Sounds like it's most likely a settings/add-on issue to me: Javascript disabled, script blockers blocking necessary scripts, or even an ad-blocker hiding the menu when it should appear could cause that. Try with add-ons completely disabled, and if that doesn't work make sure JS is enabled...if add-on's disabled does work then figure out the problem add-on by selectively enabling them until it breaks again - after that it's just a matter of either changing settings/filters within the add-on or removing it entirely to fix the issue, preferably the former.

Thanks for grabbing this @stylyy!
