    Default Reposition the Dig'it/Delicious... drop-down?

    I have a bit of a jerky mouse, and often, when I go to the 'Subscribed Posts' link I overshoot and roll over the drop-down above it (in the left-hand margin when reading a post). The drop-down obscures the link I'm aiming for, and I click elsewhere to get rid of it. Often, as luck would have it, I unwittingly click on another link, and have to cancel the load (or hit the Back button if the load has completed). Or I could just move the cursor and wait for a bit (but I don't want to move the b*@&%$ thing now that I've got it near the right f*@&%$ position!) (Or of course I could replace the batteries in my mouse... )

    This is all time consuming and frustrating. I'd be happier if the drop-down appeared somewhere else.

    Oh my gosh, you are a genius. I just cursed myself instead of asking for help!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Nah - I just worked with software engineers and acquired the habit of asking for changes to User Interfaces (as we used to say).

    Wow, BobK, thanks!!! I decided against asking for some reason which I don't remember and hollered at the monitor every time it happened to me!

    Thanks Red5 too!
