After you have stored your settings please perform a "Reload" of the present page. You should be able to see the correct/modified page.
If you do not see a Login link/button on the left-hand index area, then probably your display is set to a low resolution (e.g. 800x600 Pixel). The browser may not have enough room to show the whole Index Frame and the lower links/buttons are therefore not visible. In this case you may have to scroll down. If this possibility is not provided, try setting your display to a higher resolution (e.g. 1024x768 Pixel). With lower resolutions you may not be able to take advantage of accesory browser windows like the navigator and the thesaurus.
