Fix for YouTube Center Subscriptions Grid View

I can't possibly have been the only one running into this.  Video titles and other metadata, as well as the menu to hide each individual video, had completely disappeared.  Fortunately, this disappearance was only a visual issue, solved with a couple simple CSS tweaks via the Firefox extension Stylish.  Other browsers also have methods of loading user CSS, but I don't use other browsers.

Anyway, here's the CSS, ready to be copied/pasted into Stylish, that makes both the metadata and the menu visible once again.
@namespace url(""); @-moz-document url-prefix("") { .ytcenter-gridview .yt-lockup-content { clear: left !important; } .ytcenter-gridview .menu-container { z-index: 9001 !important; } }
It shouldn't be too hard to adapt this to other browsers, just copy what's inside the @-moz-document block and set it to only load for URLs beginning with  Make sure you don't copy/paste the period at the end of that sentence, lol.

This does have the side effect of making the menu button always visible, but to me, that's an enhancement.  Therefore, issue closed as WONTFIX.  If you'd like to make the menu easier to see, you can add a background color to the rules in the .ytcenter-gridview .menu-container selector.  I personally recommend background-color: rgba( 255, 255, 255, 0.5 ) !important;.
