Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There seems to be a bug in the JavaScript. If you open Stack Overflow and leave it for a while, in an other tab you answer questions, you gain reputation and new privileges.

If you than return to the old page, where you left, your reputation will get updated when you click on your username to show your activities, and the info about the new privileges is shown, but not the drop down menu which usually appears when you click on your name.

If you click again, you will not see the drop down menu as well, you must reload the complete page.

I'm using Firefox 3.6.15 on Ubuntu

The corner case of corner cases. This isn't a bug, unless SOP for AJAX is to be considered a bug. – Won't Mar 17 '11 at 20:02
I meant, that the popop does not appear anymore. And always the latest headline message is reloaded. – tokam Mar 17 '11 at 20:37

This is not a bug, but should be expected behavior when you haven't refreshed the page.

Simply refresh the page.
