Arrow Google Translator Bar

Hi David, and all!

Is it just me, or does everyone else get that Google Translator Bar on top of the site too?
And I can't seem to get rid of it!
This makes browsing the site + forum really uncomfortable for me, so any help is highly appreciated!

Thanks!

Christian

Yes, it's on most pages on the site. Can you attach a screenshot of the issue you're referring too? It's unobtrusive in most browsers, so if it's obviously getting in your way, I can certainly look at it further, but I haven't come across the issue you're referring to so far. So let me see it, thanks.

Attached is how it's supposed to look...

Just click on the 'x' button on the right hand side Tony to revert to the actual English page. You'll find the 'x' next to the "Show Original" button, again on the right hand side.

The problem with it is, that I have this really large bar that is actually not the one in your screenshot at the top all over the page, David.
It pops up with much delay after the page has loaded and disapperas every time I click a link, only to pop up again (with much delay) when a new page has loaded - resulting in the browser window jumping up and down.
I can close it with 'x' as often as I want to, but it pops up again every time a new page, any page on the site has loaded.

Screenshot attached.

Cheers,
Christian

Thanks for the screen shot Christian. Odd, you should be able to click on the 'x' on the right hand side and it should go away forever, unless you invoke the translate tool.

So you are saying it's reappearing for no apparent reason for you?

Try clearing your cache and restarting your web browser. Your on Firefox 3.5.2 right? Meantime, I'll look around and see if there are 'known' issues with the code snippet that's in place. I'm thinking the cache clearing might help, as I haven't seen this on any browsers myself including Firefox. But they are unused, clean & fresh installs, not daily used web browsers.

Thanks.

Thanks for sorting this out, David. I already tried clearing the cache. It would only have been logical had it disappeared altogether by pressing 'x', but unfortunately it's popping up on every single page again.

Plus... I have also checked the Firefox Add Ons section - nothing suspicious here!

Christian... I've disabled the translation tool, so you should find the issue gone now. I was reading up on it, and there are apparently issues in certain instances, so rather than being a guinea pig, will wait to they're resolved Thanks for the info and feedback.

Thanks, David!
I certainly didn't want to rant and bother everybody with this, but given that browsing the site is back to normal now I totally agree that it's much better to wait and give it another try when all those 'issues' are sorted.
Cheers,
Christian
