    I still see it in the My PF dropdown (on desktop). It's the last entry, aligned one row below the "two step verification" but in the left hand column.

    Jim, like the previous two posters I see it as well (desktop). Are you running from a mobile app?

    Inconsistent Software Someplace

    "My PF" dropdown doesn't show "logout".
    The new stuff recently added pushed it down below the bottom of page.

    Scrolling down by either up-down arrow key or the drag slider at right didnt work first time, so i started this thread. It worked twice after that, now it refuses again to scroll and i am unable to log out.
    The page behind the dropdown scrolls but the dropdown itself stays stationary and is not tall enough to show logout. It ends at two step verification.


    Before Microsoft computers were predictable
    but no more
    "Consistency is be the bugaboo of little minds" i know,,,,
    Surely when Leonard Cohen sang "You will not like it here - There's no one left to torture "
    was he addressing Bill Gates ?


    can you PLEASE move logout to top of the "My Pf" dropdown list? Surely it's used more frequently than some of those other things....

    Odd, you are missing the "show on-line status" checkbox. Also, note that the bottom line is separated by an HTML dropdown box separator line which explains why it isn't on the same line as "password" in your box.

    I think you need to be a "Gold Member" for that option... not sure, though ?

    No "Bookmarks" option, or "update your status", either ?


    Edit:
    Yeah, I see that...

    Unless you are on a public computer, there is no need to log out,
    just leave the page ... PF will show that you are no longer online
    in the members online now column on the lower right side of the
    PF main page

    i found a workaround, Firefox tools allows to zoom in or out . At about 80% 'Logout' appears on bottom. Works okay today. Tomorrow , who knows ?

    Thanks, but i prefer to always close the door behind me.
    "Internet security" is an oxymoron.

    That just makes sense. Doesn't it?

    This is because we're about to add a link directory which added "your links" option which bumped some options out of your view because your screen resolution is very low. I will look into adding it to the top.
