This might be an issue with the browser cache, you can reset that by navigating to mail.sonic.net and then pressing the CTRL key and the F5 key on your keyboard simultaneously. That should reload the page and hopefully fix your issue.

Thank You!! That did it. Wonder what caused it?
I think the pixies have been playing here...besides this problem I find today am unable to have both desktops running at the same time (using same monitor via a switch), plus this morning the Comcast TV box came on by itself with the word "hunt" displayed. Perhaps I need the ghostbusters. (smile)

Thanks again for everyone who helped.

You're welcome. I'm not exactly sure what caused that particular issue, there are a variety of things that can result in weird behavior from a browser. The old CTRL + F5 trick often fixes the problem though so that's usually one of my first steps in troubleshooting.

And I've saved that piece of wisdom for future reference.
doing a little happy dance out of here.

Another good one is to turn it off and turn it back on.
