Where did the small down-arrow go in the dashboard gadgets so that you can edit or delete a gadget?

Now that we've been upgraded to 5.2, the options to delete or edit a dashboard gadget -- which were previously visible when you hovered over the coloured-bar at the top of the gadget -- appear to be missing.

I can't find any reference to a change of fucntionality in the JIRA documentation. Can someone point me in the right direction?

(This affects our users on both Firefox and Chrome, so I don't think it's a browser-specific issue.)

If it's anything like our instance of JIRA, it's still there. It's just hiding. Have a look at the screenshot below, and you'll see the very top edge of it which is still clickable. This isn't a permanent solution (assuming it's any solution at all), but I thought it might prove helpful.

Hi Tanner, Thanks for the reply. We also had that issue up until last night -- at least could do something with that.

However today, even that's not showing. Hovering over most of the blue bar region displays the ability to drag the gadget around on the dashboard. If we hover over few mysterious pixels in the right corner, we get a tool tip to maximise the gadget. But that's it...


you're welcome.

Update: Had bad info from one of our users -- the problem only surfaces in Chrome; Firefox is fine.

Based on this and JRA-22927, looks like it's a Chrome issue. :(

Thanks again, Tanner, for the help.

i did a quick search and i came up with this:
