make sure you're allowing WordPress.com cookies at the very least (still might not work on sites with custom domains), both in the browser
On Firefox, my privacy setting is usually kept at private browsing / accept third-party cookies when I'm using WordPress.com, although believe I can log in without accepting third-party cookies if I set WordPress.com as an exception to the rule. However, if I do so, then I see Sign Up and Log In in the action bar on sites that normally display the theme if I accept third-party cookies.
and via any security plugins you might have added in your browser
I don't have any active security plugins in the FF browser. Disabling Add-Block Plus (an extension, not a plugin) had no effect on the Action Bar content.
I still don't see the theme in any of the custom domain sites, either the ones I listed above or any of the others I've collected. I just checked about ten of them again. At least 90% of the sites I've collected that don't display the theme in the Action bar are custom domain sites.
When you look at the action bar, do you see the Report content and View in the Reader links, or do you see Sign Up and Log In?
Both, depending upon whether it's a WordPress.com site or a custom domain, as follows:
- 1. In WordPress.com sites that display the theme in the Action bar, I see "Get theme: theme name," "Copy shortlink," "Report this content," etc. On the site karammedia.wordpress.com, I now see the theme link. May have misidentified this one previously.
- 2. In WordPress.com sites that don't display the theme in the Action bar, I see "Report this content," "View site in the reader," etc. I believe that all of the sites in this category have retired themes activated. I've identified the themes as retired on all but one or two such sites.
- 3. In custom domain themes that don't display the theme in the Action bar, I see "Sign up," "Log in," "Manage subscriptions," etc. I suspect that no sites with custom domains, regardless of the theme, are displaying the theme in the Action bar for me.
