it should now be in the pulldown menu, and is remembered with the cookie so that
a reload will return you to the review or biography page after you select it
once.

It's a feature, not a bug: the plugins are now in the main dropdown menu.

Found it - but for your info - (not that i think its a big issue) but if (like me) you use the magnify option in Firefox (I use it to see it on a big tv screen) the scrolling down the menu goes to pot and you can't see it - works fine in Safari though. There must be... oh at least 2 people in the world this would affect...

which 'magnify' option is this exactly?
(ctrl+/ctrl-)?

right. I'm not sure there is much I can do about increased text size for a
pulldown. I've been experimenting with a hidden div, so that the menu just
appears out of nowhere, but it is not coming along very quickly and would
probably still have the same problems since its dimensions are also fixed.

Well I cant say its a killer issue. Just a thought - Could it (also?) live alongside the local album/artist details on the left pane - context sensitive with a "read a review of this album" "read about these musicians" in both the album and artist menus. I dunno if there is enough real estate available but it would have the single advantage of letting you read up on an album or band without having them be the "now playing" group. It would certainly be fun for those people who play a lot of "unknown" stuff they download and/or have really big hard drives full of semi forgotten stuff.
