Ah. Uh. That message should have been sent over a month ago, but I was 
digging around in my drafts-folder, and somehow sent it again. Apologies 
if it appeared twice.

This smells like an issue with the CSS style-sheet. Since I forgot to  
update my own page and just did it 5 mins after sending the mail, you 
might have an old version of the style-sheet in your browser (or did try 
it while I was still uploading).

Can you please reload the page after purging your cache?

Also, I would appreciate a screenshot.

The menu issue is a bug in IE, it does not support position: fixed 
properly (read: not at all).

I already made the menu to use less entries to make it fit better on small 
screens. Furthermore, on my page I tried to fix this with IE7 like so:

<!-- compliance patch for microsoft browsers -->
 <!--[if lt IE 7]><script src="/ie7/ie7-standard-p.js" 

Unfortunately, it just occured to me that that would not work on the 
mirror, since the URl is relative and would try to load it from 
search.cpan.org, instead of from bloodgate.com.

Will fix that in the next version and with that the menu should work. If 
it still doesn't work, I can unfortunately only suggest you use a browser 
which isn't so broken :) (I know that that is not really a solution for 
some people :-D

Please can you send me a screenshot from search.cpan.org as it is now, 
too? I don't have windows, so I cannot test with IE at all.

I just re-uploaded to bloodgate.com, the search.cpan.org mirror will be 
updated when I upload a new package, probably on Sunday.

Thanx for your feedback and sorry for the mess,
