If you are logged in one of SE sites and you go to another, you will be automatically logged in and get a "Welcome back XXX, you've been logged in. Click here to refresh the page" message.
These messages by themselves are useful and are appreciated. However, they are right on the top bar, forcing you to take action (refresh the page, or click to dismiss), before you can do anything.
This is not always necessary.
For example, sometimes I come to meta just to search for
[faq] accept rate and get the link to the first post (for you know what). I could bookmark the page, but that's just an example and is not the point of this post.
Obviously, if I finish writing my search query, press enter and click the first link, that page would already have me logged in. So it was not necessary for me to "refresh" the page the first time. However, giving a message right on top of the form I am writing to (even though the form is not disabled, again not the point), is not nice.
My request is to present such messages in a nicer way. Put it somewhere that is visible, but doesn't force me to make it go away, before I can use the top bar.
