Yesterday I mentioned that Blogger wouldn't display the Nav Bar nor followers' icons, no matter what I tried. In comments on that post, reader Alec suggested starting Firefox in "safe mode", which disables all the add-ons.
It worked. :)
First world problems, admittedly, but still an on-going annoyance.
And now that I can see the icons on the sidebar, let me say "Welcome aboard!" to new-ish followers Ariel and Terra Dactyl.
