Issue navigator - Hide/Show Left Section

a problem within JIRA 5.2 and its issue navigator - the Hide/Show Left Section ' ' (left square bracket) does not work at all. In my older version (i think it was 5.1.8) was a small arrow to hide/show the left section. Where it has gone? Do you have some workaround for it. I am using FF browser and the JIRA is installed on our server (not onDemand)
