Does Anyone Else Have a Problem With The Duolingo Toolbar?

The black rectangle where it says "Home" "Immersion" "Discussion" etc. is twice as big for me. It covers up the hearts when I am practice a lesson. The Profile, Notifications, and settings button are all under the "Search learners" search bar. Does anyone else have this problem? How do I fix it?

Did you try hold down the "Ctrl" and use the scroll wheel?

It is a known issue due to the introduction of some new features. The team is looking for a solution. In the meantime, try to increase the width of the browser if possible, or zoom out using "Cntrl -". See also comment http://www.duolingo.com/comment/613747

My problem with the toolbar is the the grey letters on black are very hard to see. There is not enough contrast until the item is selected. Granted, I have old eyes but it is one of those things that I can't work around.

On my Linux system, I've used Chrome, Firefox and Opera - same problem. On Windows XP I've used Chrome and today tried IE - same problem. I know the fault is with my eyes, Although I can live with it, I just want to change the colour combination.
