I didn't see the earlier version. You mention in #votorola that you
changed it to a drop list.
External links in a drop list are unusual. Then again, it's often a
useful approach if there are many links/controls, or if they are
unimportant and you don't want them cluttering the toolbar. But these
are just two links, and both are useful.
What about icon links? A forum icon, and a diff bridge icon with the
usual "monkey finger" cursor for each.

(as mentioned, I would leave out the drop box for now)

I don't know, yet. It hasn't surfaced as a problem, and it doesn't
sound worrisome. I would wait on it.
