The page says: "Become a volunteer rescuer today by opening the sidebar on the left side of the map and add a zone to watch."

I can't figure out how to open the sidebar. There is no obvious button to click. I'm On Firefox on Windows 10. Please help.

Someone added a rescue mission for a trackable that exists in a geocache that isn't published. The system accepted this, but the map fails to render since there are no coordinates then.

The mission has now been deleted and the map works again. Perfectly normal issue for something that's beta.

Tomorrow we will make a fix that prevents this from happening again.

Thank you, I think this is legit answer.
And did the fix work? I am afraid the binocular icon is still missing.

The sidebar should be located along the left side of the map and have two icons at the top: a pair of binoculars and something that I'm not certain what to call (a banner?). Directly to the right of the sidebar should be the regular icons that are in the top left of all maps.

Come to think of it, I have access to a Win10 machine with Firefox. The sidebar doesn't appear on that machine either.
Nor in my other browsers on Win 10, Chrome, Edge and IE.
Same here, Win10 machine, no sidebar in Firefox or Chrome.
also no sidebar - yesterday it was there

1. Win XP FF and IE
2. Win 7 FF and Chrome
Really, there is no sidebar.
And no "clickable markers" on the map. Only blue circles and 1 red circle, no other layers.
I think it's sad that an answer that describes how it should look and work gets downvoted. I upvoted it since it's a perfectly legit answer.
