    Can't log in

    HiAll,
    When I open the ubuntu forums page the search box is half covering the username box and preventing me logging in.This happens when using ubuntu 8.04 and firefox.
    I have another hdd in this pc with xp installed,{the one I'm using now}and the page opens correctly.I can drag the search box away from the username but it just springs back.
    Any ideas on fixing this appreciated.

    Could you post a screenshot? You take a screenshot of a window by selecting the window, then hitting Alt+Print Screen (often abbreviated as Prt Scr. It's right next to F12 usually)

    Also, does hitting Ctrl+0 in firefox do anything?

    That's a zero (0), not the letter o.

    There's no option to add attachments in the quick post textarea (afaik), but if you click the "go advanced" button, then there's a button named "Manage Attachments" under "Additional Options" further down on the page. From there you should be able to upload the image to the forums and attach it to your post.

    Quite odd. It looks fine for me in both hardy and intrepid. Do you have any particular plugins installed?

    To find out whether it could be firefox itself that is the problem, or if it is some settings you have that alter the stylesheet, try creating a new user (System -> Administration -> Users and groups), log in with that user and see if it renders correctly for that user.

    Hello again,sorry I've been away a while.Notice how the search bar is partly over the username.This prevents the username being inserted.Problem has been overcome by entering correct details when told username or password was incorrect and marking "remember my name,password" so I don't have to enter it every time.

    Go to Edit-->Preferences-->Content and change your font size to something smaller, you will be able to login, enable remember me, then set the font size back to what you like.

    Can you use the tab key to navigate until you reach the username box?
