I'm using a Windows 7 laptop with a 1680x1050 display here. A non-full-screen window, created at about the size I'd normally create it as (see attached) is 812 pixels high.

Unfortunately as you can see the menu doesn't fit on the screen - it is cut off below "map notes". There is an extra scroll bar - but who expects to have to scroll a menu? It is difficult to imagine a screen on which this would fit (for a person who's sized browser contents based on average eyesight).

Can the pictures on the menu be removed if the menu as a whole wouldn't otherwise fit on the screen? They add essentially no value.

Is this better in the new design, where the entries in the layer selector have been somewhat smaller?

This is both better in the current design (where each map entry takes up less vertical space) and also currently better since we have fewer maps in the list than we use to. :-(

We can revisit this in the future if the menu becomes significantly longer again.
