Cannot delete a gadget from layout 1 Recommended Answer 8 Replies 1 Upvote

I see 2 instances of the Follow By Email gadget when I view my blog, but they do not show in the Layout tool so I am unable to delete either of them. I've clicked around looking other ways to edit my layout but can't find any other way. I don't see anything I recognize as being this issue when searching in Help Center or previous Community posts

Hi Steve,
The gadgets are both in the footer section of your blog (footer-1).
Can you see either of them there, in layout? Can you post a screen shot of that area in your Layout page?

Here's what I do see
I don't see them in my Layout area, but if I click to add a new gadget I am told they're already on my page.

Using Chrome instead of Firefox, I see the missing gadgets in Layout.

I'll delete from there and away I go.

Thanks so much for the advice.

To fix it in Firefox, you probably just need to clear your browser cache and reboot.

Well, rebooting and clearing cache lets me see the Layout controls as expected in Firefox as well as Chrome, but now I notice what may have been the source of the original problem. With Firefox I now have the Follow By Email gadget showing in my Layout (footer-1) but when I click to Add Gadget, the Follow By Email entry in the gadget list does not show it as already installed. I see the + icon that would presumably let me install it again.

What's more, when I view my blog, the gadget shows up in Chrome but not in Firefox (even if I use a new private window in FF in an attempt to bypass cache, cookies, etc.).
