Yes, I still can't see it.  Remember, I'm apparently the only person
in the world who occasionally does not see the "Log out" link at the
lower right corner.  In fact, right this instant I'm looking at the
"slogan, n." page and not seeing both -- no "Publication history" and
no "Log out".

In a second simultaneously open incarnation of the OED, for "motto,
v." I see only "Entry profile".  Although when I go on and search for
another entry -- "disturb, n." -- I then do see the "Log out" link.

Using Firefox 14.0.1 over Windows XP Professional, version 5.1, with
Service Pack 3.
