Grey bar at the top of the page... Answered

Today was for first time this happened to me (note:  at this machine, the OS is WinXP, and so the browser being MSIE can not be upgraded higher than 7). the grey bar near the top of the page  (where  SIGN IN is slightly higher in the right hand corner), prevented me from signing in.   The drop down box slid behind the grey line.  I only managed to get a sign on screen by trying to post here (and then it of course, prompts you to sign in or join).

That is what it looks like on a clean IE10. I get the feeling that instructables.com had no development / maintenance crew left?

It works fine for me at home, with IE (whatever I have for Win7) FF and Chrome. Just not at work

Have you updated your browser since your last reply?

no, with the machine being a work machine (it doesn't do it at home), and the OS being XP, I am limited. The next "update", IIRC doesn't work on XP

I had some "rare" and annoying problems, until I reinstalled Firefox. Try it with MSIE, it is an easy and fast tentative solution.

BTW: as I stated above, I have the troubles at work only, with a Win XP machine using MSIE 7....which is the highest XP supports. "Well that's your problem right there'

The YOU dropdown going behind the dark grey up top usually means the page didn't load correctly. Can you try clearing the browser cache then try refreshing?

Still doing it.

I can live with it signing on, :-) It is probably this ole browser.....I will use Chrome from here if it causes me any difficulties
