    All of a sudden I can’t get any of the drop-downs to show on my wordpress toolbar–ie the “my account”, “my blog”, “blog info” tabs. When I put my cursor there no dropdowns appear so I can’t go to my dashboard, site stats, Support etc (eventually got here to Support by googling it). I already tried clearing my browser’s cache/ cookies which didn’t help. Please advise, thanks!

    Can you please tell us which browser and version you’re using?

    I hope I’m not double-posting! thought I already replied but don’t see it here in the thread.
    I use Mozilla/ firefox.
    It turns out the toolbar does work when i open in Internet Explorer. Would prefer to keep using firefox, though
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:2.0b5) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b5
    Thanks,

    Okay, looks like you’re still using a beta release of Firefox 4. Can you try updating to Firefox 4.0.1? You’ll find this here.

    Thanks, I updated on that link and still the toolbar still didn’t work. And the “b” for beta was still there in my ‘updated’ version! But thanks for the clue. My husband is slightly more tech-savvy than i am –he read your suggestion and disabled firefox then got me switched to the current beta version (oddly I was on some older one) and it all works now. Don’t know why I can’t seem to opt out of being “beta”! But as long as the wp toolbar works again I guess it’s ok.
    Thanks for the help!
