Unless you explicitly turn off images, the logo should be visible. But 
even then, there is an empty box which is the exact same size as the 
image. The search box is positioned  absolutely; 4em (44px) from the top 
with a left-margin of 550px so it will never overlap the logo. The menu 
is left-positioned and has a width of 70% of the browser window.

A screenshot would be very helpful. You can send it to me personally or 
give me an URL, whichever you prefer.

For the record: I have tested Mozilla 1.02, 1.1, 1.2.1, 1.3.1, 1.4.1 and 
1.5. None of them have problems like you describe, and from 1.2.1 up, 
the menu displays perfectly (although the links don't work except in my 
latest CVS copy of MozillaFirebird; strangely enough they work fine in 
windows mozilla's I've tested). Can you try a stable release and see if 
it has the same issues? And if it doesn, what's your screen resolution, 
DPI and font-size settings?
