    I've got a problem with flight tracker that's driving me up a wall and I was hoping someone might be able to help me.

    I have no problems using flight tracker, but the size of the text seems to make some of the information get lost behind the menus (specifically, the arrival times).

    I've attached two screenshots of what I actually see.

    Any ideas?

    Hmmm...regarding your second screenshot, my flight tracker only shows the time, whereas yours also shows the date, which is what seems to be causing the problem.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I clicked on the widget and then hit the apple key + R. It did a cool little swirl, but I'm still having the same problems.

    UPDATE:

    THANK YOU wildcowboy for turning me on to the idea of the time.

    I went into system preferences and changed the time format under the 'international preferences' tab. I had originally had the time set to 'custom' (trying to get the full date/time to appear on the menu bar by following the instructions I found here - complete failure).

    The change worked!!!
