On short posts it's a bigger problem because there is insufficient screen space for that long list of languages to appear without getting truncated at the top. If I zoom out in my browser, I can sometimes reach the top. I usually have to disable my browser toolbars, too with F11. Maybe it would work better if the language list were horizontal instead of vertical. But whatever they do, don't put it in a modal window because this forum's modals are another usability nightmare.
