    Those annoying little boxes on the left

    Is there any way I can get rid of them?

    The symbols are already in less obtrusive circles elsewhere on the page.

    Infuriating!

    I was about to post the same thing. Unless I scroll down, I can't even click on the "Admin" dropdown because the "Facebook share" button obscures it.

    Well, thanks a lot, Rover. I hadn't noticed them until you so inconsiderately pointed them out!

    For me they're right across the page at the bottom (except when they're elsewhere).

    For me too on my Android phone. This is true whether I'm using Google Chrome or Firefox. I also tested a very secure high-privacy browser called InBrowser with the same result.

    The error in alignment has been fixed now. :)
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Yup, they adapt according to the device size. Desktop and larger laptops will see them vertically on the side. Phones and smaller tablets will see them at the foot of the page where they can sit without being too intrusive.

    Handy, for those that don't wish to use it!
