    I could not locate an appropriate folder to place this question:

    How do you turn "off" that floating "youtube-like" band that stretches across the screen. I scroll down it scrolls with me, I scroll up and it scrolls upwith me.

    In this screenshot, you can see the submenu option "All Your Post" where it is slightly cut off.... well,.... I wanted to get to the very next menu opion "All Your Threads".... but that bar keeps getting in the way......

    Yeah! while we are on the subject... just how DO you get rid of that Youtube gray bar that floats all over "hayle" and back on Youtube when all you want to do is click on the very item thats hidden and unaccessible behind that annoying bar?

    That 'youtube bar' looks like the likes counter. But it isn't supposed to stretch across the screen, move as you scroll or cover up other parts of the UI.

    So it's a bug, unfortunately, not something you can turn off.

    I've put this in the suggestion box and feedback section where Phases will see it.

    EDIT: You could probably block it temporarily with AdBlock though, if your browser supports it.

    I see the likes bar stretched accross the screen when I switch to IE as well. Doesn't happen in Chrome. I don't see the bottom buttons overlayed in either.

    Win 7 Latest IE/Chrome

    When Im in a thread, or forum, and try to use the pull down menu "Quick Links", if there are any "likes" in that section, the Likes are blocking the Quick links options.

    Hmm... I'm on Firefox 10.0.2 on XP and the likes don't block it for me. I just 'liked' this post to check. But, for a split second if you click the big 'Like' button at the top, and then quickly click the Quick Links it does cover it up... but for me that lasts only a second.

    What browser/OS are you using?

    I merged the two threads on this topic together as it would appear to be the same bug.
