    May 31 2011: Sometimes, like now on the McLaren talk, the rate frame pops up behind the viewing frame. It makes it impossible to rate properly.
    • Jun 2 2011: Interesting! What browser are you using Debra? Could you include the version number as well?

        Jun 5 2011: You know- this is why TED is so great. I have a dumb answer and instead of someone ridiculing me, I got help. Thank you Shadia!
        I am using Google (not chrome). I still don't know where to find the version number though.

          Jun 5 2011: So far as I am aware the Google browser is called Chrome.

          If you have Chrome - To find out which version click on the spanner icon on the right of the address bar at the top of your browser. When you click there will be a drop down menu that will emerge as if by magic.

          The third last item on that menu is something called about Google Chrome. Click on that. A New Window will emerge which will have a number just below Google Chrome like so 11.0.696.65. That is your version number.

          If you find this helpful you could acknowledge there are somethings I do know more than you. (And also that the greatness of TED is perhaps due its members and not just its name :)... )

          Also re: your original problem (because its not really the version number you are interested in) - you can make your screen and words etc larger or smaller by keeping the Ctrl Key pressed and then pressing + or - . By jiggling with that you may solve your problem. First make it smaller

          Of course if you do not have Chrome then neither do you have Google but some other browser, so you will have to tell us the name for another set of instructions.

          (By keeping the Ctrl Key pressed and then pressing + Key or - Key, jiggling with that could solve your problem no matter what your browser)

        Jun 5 2011: Richard,
        Thank you- I will check for that.

        "If you find this helpful you could acknowledge there are somethings I do know more than you. (And also that the greatness of TED is perhaps due its members and not just its name :)... )"

        It is absolutely true that you know more than I do on many things (and I have acknowledged that if you will go back over the record) I give you credit for knowing more than I do on the topics closest to your heart. I publically posted that you have superior knowledge of the writings of Islam and I thanked you in one post for caring so much to protect people from what you appear to believe is a great danger. I even emailed you to that effect. Your sprits in the debates keeps them exciting.

        If I were in a battle for my life- I would want a braveheart lion like you next to me if you thought I was on your side. You have the desire to be noble. - But in establishing world peace -not so much because I want to see all people as first and foremost human beings and not just ideologies. Each life really matters to me.

        Jun 5 2011: I have had the same problem while using Chrome v.11.0.696.71

          Jun 5 2011: Try keeping the Ctrl Key pressed and then pressing - (the minus key) to make the screen smaller. (If it gets too small keep the Ctrl key pressed and then press + (The plus key). At one point it may work. Let me know if it does.
        • Jun 6 2011: Thanks for all the input guys!!

          I'm running this by our QA team, the first thing that pops to mind though would be if you have resized things in the browser, say to enlarge the text (what I believe you were getting at Richard).

          I'll check to see if we can replicate it here though!
