Is anyone else having trouble?........all the drop down menus are on my screen on the right side in blue lettering on top of whatever I'm supposed to be looking at.  Horizontally spread out.  The bottom of the page is stretched into one vertical column and the headings on everything else are HUGE.

I could view PBS was fine this morning.......this evening it was wild!!!  I shut down, cleared history, cookies, etc.etc, just logged back on and it is still wild!!!

Am I alone with these problems????

Edited to add:  Not everything is working for me....I can Edit Book Data, but cannot Upload Images.  Even my bookshelf is weird....title under the image and I cannot look at my public bookshelf.

The  PBS team may be doing some work on the system.  It has happened to me before, but it cleared up.  I hope it gets better for you soon.

Thanks Ruth.  I just tried to read a PM that came through.....only it appears to be just a portion of the message!!  A few weeks ago the drop down menus didn't work at all for me......Now they are spread out all over the page!!!  Hard to locate things when the black writing is underneath the blue!!  Oh well, always an adventure!!!

You might want to try shutting down your browser, flushing the cache and temp directories, then rebooting.  It's always the first thing I do (and suggest to clients) when browsers start acting weird, even if it's just a single site.  Even if that's not the problem it gives you a clean slate to start troubleshooting from.

Thanks Berhnard, I had done all of that....but no luck.  This morning I uploaded some Microsoft updates......couldn't tell you what, since it is all automatic.  Just logged in and PBS is back to normal!!!!

I'd used the contact link....they suggested it was my browser. 

Last week when the drop down menus hadn't worked, I'd seen in the forums about it possibly being the browser.  I didn't change mine, and a week later the menus were working again!!  Keeps it all exciting I guess...lol
