The one that would appear when you scrolled down, that had links to active, I'm on, etc. Mine has gone and there's nothing mentioned about it in customise anymore either. Used to be an on/off switch in there for it.

I miss it sad

SheilaWheeler Tue 04-Dec-12 17:35:44

I've just come over to Site Stuff to start a thread to say the same.

Glad it's not just me.

Can we have it back, please?

SuePurblyFeltYourPresents Tue 04-Dec-12 17:47:51

GORN sad

lubeybooby Tue 04-Dec-12 18:39:31

Argh pleeeease bring it back! Fed up of scrolling and scrolling... please MNHQ

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Tue 04-Dec-12 18:40:30

Oh I thought it was just me! Give it back MNHQ.

Yay! Not just me then!
<Heaves sigh of relief that she hasn't screwed the software up with that latest upgrade. Phew!>

And me, please Santa, bring it back.

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Tue 04-Dec-12 18:58:27

Mine has gone too.

Imadesantablush Tue 04-Dec-12 18:59:59

mines gone too, was going to ask but in a very lazy mood!

BerthaTheBogBurglar Tue 04-Dec-12 19:01:26

Ooooh! So that's what's wrong. Knew there was something funny about all the scrolling I was doing!

ViperInTheManger Tue 04-Dec-12 19:02:16

I thought it was my Christmas namechange that did it! Glad it's not just me.

lubeybooby Tue 04-Dec-12 19:04:22

I'm also glad it's not just me! I had a feeling it wouldn't be when I noticed the opt in had gone from customise.

BrianCoxIsAChristmasPud Tue 04-Dec-12 19:07:41

I have been online for half an hour, mooching around Active Convos and I couldn't work out what was wrong.....I am a bit slow to catch on to things at the moment grin

MrsHoarder Tue 04-Dec-12 19:09:54

Hurrah! No more irritating bar getting in the way when I'm not logged on.

Sorry everyone. Hint, if you press "home" on your keyboard you go straight back to the top of the page.

I love my floaty bar. I miss it when I'm on the iPad. Please can we have it back?

StNickHasHisXmasTeakozyOn Tue 04-Dec-12 19:31:08

My floaty bar's disappeared too. sad

RightUpMyRue Tue 04-Dec-12 19:32:41

AmberLeaf Tue 04-Dec-12 19:46:48

Thought it was my laptop.

Bring it back please!

hugoagogo Tue 04-Dec-12 20:27:18

Mine's gone too. Using Firefox 16.0.2 at the momment. I've restarted firefox, and my machine, and it's still not here.

I hope tech can fix it quick, I'm too lazy to have to scroll back up all the time. grin

SheilaWheeler Wed 05-Dec-12 17:48:59

Still waiting .........

lubeybooby Wed 05-Dec-12 17:54:48

MNHQ answered the other thread first. It's gone because of complaints about it.

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 18:05:34

Sorry. Hadn't seen this thread too.

Yes, we took it down because we had so many cross mails about it.

We had no idea some people liked it!

We'll see what we can do...

BrianCoxIsAChristmasPud Wed 05-Dec-12 18:06:03

what? Complaints?

I found it really useful and am totally lost without it - it makes the site less easy to navigate.

I like to read a thread down the page (instead of 'flipping' the page so the last message is at the top) so in order to get back to Active or Im On, I have to scroll all the way back up screen (on a long thread it is just annoying frankly).


LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 18:07:38

Ok. Message received loud and clear.

As I said, we'll see what we can do for you all.

BrianCoxIsAChristmasPud Wed 05-Dec-12 18:11:22

sorry HelenMN - I had my lil rant prior to seeing your message blush

sits in a corner and hides from the world til latest wave of pregnancy hormones dies down

That's OK. But thanks - appreciated.

AmberLeaf Wed 05-Dec-12 19:53:12

Couldn't the people who didn't like it just turn it off in customise?

I hated it at first, but love it now and really can't be arsed if its not there.

snowtunesgirl Wed 05-Dec-12 20:13:06

Noooooo, please bring it back. It's so useful, especially if you've minimised your window because you're supposed to be working.

DorsetKnob Wed 05-Dec-12 20:16:49

Please can we have it back?

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Wed 05-Dec-12 20:19:50

Well, I would really like it back please.

Ranthambore Wed 05-Dec-12 20:49:47

Pleeeeeease bring it back.

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 21:01:21

Evening. We'll see what we can do.

Smeggnog Thu 06-Dec-12 09:42:36

Complaints? Why? It's so useful.

Add me to the 'bring it back' list please.

Cheddars Thu 06-Dec-12 09:59:24

I'm really missing my floater. sad

I miss it. I've customised to display the entire thread, latest post at the bottom, si I really find it useful.

so, not si blush

cumfy Thu 06-Dec-12 22:29:11

I've absolutely no idea what this is, but I'm now certain my life is incomplete without one.envy

IceTheChristmasKateMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-Dec-12 12:26:50


I'm really missing my floater. sad

The floaty bar (whose been using its time off from Mumsnet to visit Europe) is very touched, and tells me it never realised how loved it was.

We are working on getting it back, and having it as an "opt in", rather than a "opt out" feature. Bear with us!

Yay! grin

I shall welcome it back with open arms!

Cheddars Fri 07-Dec-12 14:10:03
LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-Dec-12 16:20:58


And the floaty bar is back - if you want it.

Just go to Customise/Other options/Hide the viewport bar (A.K.A. slide bar) and select No.

Re-enjoy smile

Yay! It's back grin

Lots of wine and thanks for MNHQ and Tech smile

AmberLeaf Fri 07-Dec-12 16:41:57

Yaay! Thank you! wine flowers

SheilaWheeler Fri 07-Dec-12 21:39:59
