Occasionally, the [[Main Pages]] can produce some odd '''glitches''' by clicking and holding down a button, and then dragging off them. This is due to the limits of the [[Flash]] software. Specifically, any image or animation that only appears while the cursor stays over a button remains if you click the left mouse button and hold it down, then drag the cursor away from the Main Page button, and let go.
