When I try to download an ebook, the drop-down menu to select file type goes over the "popular shelves" bar, and it won't let me click on the file. I only have this problem in IE7. It seems to be working fine in Firefox.

I uploaded the e-book
On the Use of Philosophy: Three Essays
and wanted to be sure that the book is downloadable. I have the same problem as vicki_girl - the drop-down menu goes in the way.

I have had that problem as well. I think I just ended up downloading from a different site. I was able to download the one that vicki_girl shows in the screenshot. You just have to be very precise where you point your mouse.

Thank you, Cheryl, I tried to download the book again and it worked.

This problem has recurred for me. I am using IE8 if that makes a difference.
ETA: Correction, this is occuring in IE7
