I was just trying to access the site from my trusty Ubuntu notebook computer and found that all pages for the site are obscured by a "film" that covers the top part of the screen. This overlay makes it impossible to do anything with the site. I realize that Ubuntu users that have Firefox 3.0b5 are not high on your hit list, but I thought you would want to know that there are some people who can't use the site. I have a screenshot of the problem if you are interested.
Just in case you were wondering, I also keep a copy of IE6 on this computer that runs under Wine for just this type of emergency :-)
I had the same problem earlier this evening. Shutting down computer cleared the problem.
I am running Ubuntu 8.04 and FireFox 3.04 and have not noticed any major problems.
Edit: I would kind of be interested in seeing the Screen Shot though, so I could see what you were talking about...
Dottie you were right on the money. I rebooted and the problem vanished.
Sorry for posting a false alarm. You can ignore me from now on ;-)

I was reading through the "answer" section and my browser froze up. The easiest fix always seems to be to close the browser and then open it back up. That solved the problem, but the very first thing I noticed was that the look of Firefox had changed. The main ones I'm seeing are the...

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.
