Using Firefox 3.5.1 and it's showing up here. Problems with the Java plugin, perhaps?

Thumbs don't use Java, they use Javascript (which is totally different despite the similar name). So if there's some kind of plugin having to do with scripting, that might have something to do with it.

But yeah... FF is fine here, too.

Go to Tools/Options/Content and make sure Javascript is enabled.

Do you have any other plugins that might affect scripting enabled? Go to Tools->Add-Ons (or maybe Plugins depending on the version) and see if disabling anything helps. Might not be a bad idea to remove any BGG-related cookies (or just clear all your cookies), though I'm not sure that would have anything to do with thumbs not working.

When in doubt, nuking my personal Firefox folder from orbit has helped in the past, though it's been years since I've needed to do so. Just keep a copy of your bookmarks, close Firefox, and delete the folder (on Windows, C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla).

Try clearing your cache. Did that move in FF3.5? All I'm seeing is Tools/Clear Recent History. Show the details (press the v if you see it) and and only have cache checked, and pick everything from the drop down.

You're welcome. That's a pretty good step to take any time you see such an oddity.

I had the same problem, though only the thumb button for the thread was missing. Tried clearing the cache, and refreshed the page, that worked fine, many thanks! And of course I've made sure it worked by thumbing all the words of wisdom on this thread....
