I've loved using this script, and it has worked great on my work PC & home PC (never any issues).

I updated to v3.1.0 at home & all was fine. I updated to v3.1.0 here at work (same OS & browser), and each expanded feed item has the 'mark as read' buttons etc hidden like this:

**I've already tried clearing all cookies/settings/cache/etc from everything**

Win 7 - FF v8.0.1
(script runs perfectly fine at home!)

Anyone have any suggestions?

I should also note. If I disable the script, the buttons go back to where they should be (where the blue arrows are in that image i linked above)

I have the exact same problem, and that's because for whatever reason on Google's end, your work's machine still has the old layout. Follow these instructions to manually update it http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2011/11/how-to...

Tam, you may yourself still have the old layout, AFIW Google hasn't enabled the new header for Google Reader yet. Have you at any point cookie hacked the new YouTube design? i.e document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=ST1Ti53r4fU"; (yes, it's live now for everybody but the hack remains in your cookie)

A side affect of the YouTube hack is that it enables Google's NEW header bar in Google Reader. Delete your Google cookies and reload. You may find your Reader interface is also messed up and you've inadvertently 'fixed' a redesign that only YOU can see.

Thanks cqrt. I've been using the new layout (for gmail and youtube) for a few days now. In fact, I don't even need the cookie hack to use it, as of yesterday. Plus, I was already rocking Cosmic Panda a long time ago, so the Youtube change wasn't that big of a slap in the face.

I've notified my users to not update to anything 2.8.0 and up if they don't have the new layout. Plus, the link I posted above has all the instructions they need.

Thanks!

For those of you that don't mind getting a little dirty, here is a simple fix:
From grease monkey, edit the script... Look for line No. 92...
It will look like this:(watch for word wrap)
#title-and-status-holder { background-color: #E6E6E6; z-index: 2; width: 100%; border-bottom: #aaa solid 2px; top: 85px; position: fixed; } \

See near the end of the line... 85px... Change this to 127px and save the file...
After the corrections it should look like this:
#title-and-status-holder { background-color: #E6E6E6; z-index: 2; width: 100%; border-bottom: #aaa solid 2px; top: 127px; position: fixed; } \

Or, like I said, just don't update the script to anything 2.8.0 and up and you should be fine :)

I have the new YouTube but Gmail and Reader is still showing the old header for me. The good news is that I applied the YouTube cookie hack and it enabled the new header in Reader so I was able to code the changes to Google Reader Sanity and put the code aside 'til I need it ('til I see the new design or my users start complaining).

Aaaaaaahhh... that's so smart. Damn I should've thought of that haha.

But then again, I don't wanna force users to use the new layout until they have no choice. That'd defeat the purpose of trying to bring everything back.

I just noticed this evening that the "previous item" and "next item" buttons were not working completely. That is to say that only the bottom 40% of the buttons are actually active. Weird! I never noticed anything before tonight and yes I did use the google.com cookie hack a week or so ago. I cleared out all my cookies and I was able to use the script up to v2.7.1 and with the cookie hack I can still only use up to v2.7.1 any newer versions disable the top half of both buttons. When I cleared the cookies I was surprised that I didn't have the updated nav bar yet, anywhere. Damn it Google!.......Just wanted to add that I had the exact same results on a laptop and a desktop.

Hmmm... can you take me a screen shot? Here's what mine looks like http://www.jpegtown.com/user_uploads/ak1Chuq_Un...

As you can see, Google just broke the G+ area on the top right corner... a fix is coming soon.

This is very annoying :(

Holy crap! You should have warned me to put my sunglasses on before I looked at your screenshot. Only God knows how much UV I got from all the white background! ☺ Just kidding.....That's one of the things that makes FF so great, the almost infinite amount of personal customization. I don't use google plus as you can tell from my screenshot.

That screen shot does indicate that you're using the new layout, but still the old version of the script. Notice the 3 big changes: lack of black nav bar on top, drop-down Google logo, and the 'Reader' in red right below the logo. You should update the script to the latest version to see if that fixes it. Don't forget to take another screen shot too :)
