my Firefox doesn't display Tumblr controls

I'd been trying to use Tumblr, and found it hard to use, but it turns out that I'm just not seeing all controls in in my Firefox (still on version 3.6.18 on Ubuntu 10.10, so far I've been too lazy to update). Anyway, in Firefox when I'm logged in I don't see the icons to (un)subscribe and get to the dashboard that should appear in the top right corner. If I use another browser they are there. I use NoScript, but have allowed all Javascript on the page, and I have also turned off my AdBlockPlus on the chance that that might interfere in some accidental way, but neither helps. Does anyone have an idea why the Tumblr controls are invisible?

I had the same problem on both Linux and Mac. The only way to solve the Firefox problem for me was to update. Skip 4 and install Firefox 5. That one displays Tumblr fine.

Odd! These are my addons:
My add ons are Adblocker, Better Privacy, Element Hiding Helper for Adblock, Ghostery, along with the usuals: Stylish, Greasemonkey, Webdeveloper, and Firebug.

Do any match yours? I'm wondering if an extension is causing this, or if its a bug in Firefox. Try disabling all of your extensions as see if the admin icons reappear. If so, Then enable the extensions one by one to find the culprit.

There's a new community for Firefox, by the way:

Maybe leave that one. I'm sure the data wouldn't get lost if you disable it, but If it makes you nervous, keep that one enabled.

Find Tumblr in teh list and uncheck it..
