I am trying to export a list from CiviCRM and I seem to be missing the actions drop-down. I have used this field before, but it has dissappeared. I have attached an image of what my screen currently looks like when I am doing an advanced search. From memory, the Actions drop-down usually sat underneath the 'edit search criteria' section and above the "A,B,C.." search function. I am using a Macbook and have tried both Firefox and Safari in case the browser is not supported properly, but neither seem to work. screenshot of problem

    You and Nina both need to provide more information eg what version, and what change has happened between it working and it disappearing?

I had the same issue and found the problem. Perhaps this will help you. On my site, I modified the css to hide some information from the public facing CiviCRM pages. When I did that I also hide the Actions Drop-down. When I commented out this one line, the Actions Drop-down displayed again:

/* .crm-container #search-status {display:none;} */
