Ryannnnn priority asked 10 months ago

Expected behavior

To be able to view the dropdown items

Actual behavior

enter image description here

The menu prints item's off the browser/screen. Photo is attached.

I'm using these examples:

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

this is the header section of my component home.component.html

<nav class="navbar navbar-expand-lg fixed-top navbar-scroll" [class.navbar-scrolled]="navbarScrolled">
    <div class="container-fluid d-flex justify-content-between">

        <!-- left-aligned items -->
        <div class="navbar-left-items">
            <ul class="navbar-nav">
                <li class="nav-item active poppins-font">
                    <button type="button" class="btn btn-tertiary no-text-transform" mdbRipple rippleColor="dark">Call to action</button>

        <!-- centered items -->
        <div mdbCollapse #animatedNavbarExample2="mdbCollapse" class="collapse navbar-collapse justify-content-center" id="animatedNavbarExample2">
            <ul class="navbar-nav">
                <li class="nav-item active poppins-font">
                    <span class="nav-link">Site</span>

        <!-- right-aligned items -->
        <div class="navbar-right-items">
            <ul class="navbar-nav flex-row">
                <li class="nav-item">
                    <form class="d-flex search-container">
                        <input type="search" class="form-control search-input" placeholder="Search" aria-label="Search" [(ngModel)]="searchTerm" name="searchTerm" />
                        <i class="fas fa-search search-icon" (click)="onSearch()"></i>
                <li class="nav-item">

                    <!-- if the user's logged in -->
                    <div *ngIf="authService.userLoggedIn">
                        <div mdbDropdown class="dropdown">
                            <button class="btn btn-link dropdown-toggle" type="button" id="dropdownMenuButton" aria-expanded="false" mdbDropdownToggle>
                                <i class="fas fa-2x fa-user-circle"></i>
                            <ul mdbDropdownMenu class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-lg-start" aria-labelledby="dropdownMenuButton">
                                <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Action</a></li>
                                <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Another action</a></li>
                                <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Something else here</a></li>

                    <!-- if the user's not logged in -->
                    <div *ngIf="!authService.userLoggedIn">
                        <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-rounded" mdbRipple>Login</button>



and here's the relevant SCSS:

// Navbar styling
// color of the links BEFORE scroll
.navbar-scroll .nav-link,
.navbar-scroll .navbar-toggler-icon {
    color: #000000;

// color of the links AFTER scroll
.navbar-scrolled .nav-link,
.navbar-scrolled .navbar-toggler-icon {
    color: #4f4f4f;
    // color: #ec4545;

// color of the navbar AFTER scroll
.navbar-scrolled {
    background-color: #fff;

// an optional height of the navbar AFTER scroll
.navbar.navbar-scroll.navbar-scrolled {
    padding-top: 5px;
    padding-bottom: 5px;

.navbar-left-items {
    margin-left: 15px;

.navbar-right-items {
    margin-right: 15px;

// search form in the navbar
.search-container {
    position: relative;
    margin-right: 20px;     // to give a little room before the login button

.search-input {
    padding-right: 40px;
    position: relative;

.search-icon {
    position: absolute;
    right: 10px;
    top: 50%;
    transform: translateY(-50%);
    cursor: pointer;
