    No pulldown arrows?

    Hello everyone! Just something i noticed: under Windows Explorer i see these arrows next to Search, Quick Links. But under Firefox i don't see them. Why is that? screenshot FF: http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/4...0110092012.png

    Just reproduced the symptom here, that is I made the down arrows disappear, by blocking scripting, in particular I blocked yahooapis.com.

    If you are using script blocking or ad blocking allow yahooapis.com for the site and you should get them back. Cheers, coldcritter64.

    I'm not using any kind of script blocking under FF. The only thing i use is Adblock Plus. But i don't think that is causing the issue here, right?

    I can see them fine here, and I'm using a truckload of blocking-related addons. OP, you can try Shirt+F5-ing the page to clear the cache.

    Check all your adblock settings. I vaguely remember someone else here a long while back using it having trouble with the yahooapis scripting on this site. IIRC Adblock also uses script blocking as part of the blocking of ads. Hopefully someone using adblock can point you to the right settings for it to use here.

    Tried everything, nothing helped. I kinda was hoping you could remember that topic.... Well, i'll search for it too.

    Could be! Disable Adblock Plus and try.
    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
    Use ubuntu-support-status with caution.

    If it is indeed caused by Adblock Plus, you'll have to make an exception rule.

    To do that, click on the dropdown arrow next to the ABP icon and then click on Open Blockable items.
    You'll get a panel listing items that are blocked (red) or unblocked (green or black).
    I have
    http://yui.yahooapis.com/2.9.0/build...n-min.js?v=387
    and
    http://yui.yahooapis.com/2.9.0/build...event.js?v=387
    as allowed or unblocked.

    To allow any blocked item, double-click on it, and then choose exception rule (which will be the default when you double-click on a blocked item).


    A simpler way is to just disable ABP on ubuntuforms.org!
    But then you'll get that to see that irritating guitar player

    @ catlover2 & vasa1:
    in this post i mentioned that i did a fresh/new install of Lubuntu. Maybe i wasn't really clear with what i ment, but i did a totally new and fresh install of Lubuntu. First i removed all partitions with the live-cd of Gparted and then i installed Lubuntu using a live-cd. After that i only removed Google Chromium (terrible browser IMHO) installed Firefox => no add-on's!! And still the button's for the pulldown menu aren't visible.

    @ vasa1:
    I'll check those 2 links. Maybe they help but looking at my comment above it has nothing to do with Adblock Plus or other add-on.

    @ elfy:
    I'lll try that and see if that makes any difference.
