I just came back to my computer after a late dinner, and noticed a weird problem with LBC. It is there (I get the "pop" sound when I move the mouse to that side of the screen), but I can't see it / access it. I have it set to AutoHide, but usually that seems to work fine. This has happened before, but I just figured out, tonight, what the common factor was. Every time, it is when my monitor has powered down then powered back up - LBC seems to get 'lost' in this process somehow.
I suspect it is my video driver, or something similar, causing this, but wonder if anyone else has noticed behaviour like this, or figured out a fix, short of rebooting. I'm running a Dell Dimension 4700 with XP Pro, SP2 (got a weird problem keeping me from installing SP3 or any of the NET framework updates - something I really need to deal with one of these days), and use a flat panel monitor with a RADEON X300.
Edited to Add: Just posted this, shut Firefox down so I could reboot - and LBC reappeared at the side of the screen, just that thin little line that tells me it's there. I've really got to sort my system out enough that I can wipe the HDD and start over - without installing anything I don't need. I get the feeling half my problems are too many programs on here... (I've got roughly 200 installed. And 1800 fonts. Yes, I know. I'm lucky the thing's running at all.)
