Cannot reproduce on en.wp with Firefox 36 on Fedora 21. Looks like "Previously" here.

(Plus no deployment since March 25 on en.wp (except SWATs that I didn't check) and don't see anything in about .mw-notification-area either.)

It's now visible at beta:

No longer visible at enwiki. Screenshotted:

Confirming, and on en.wp in Vector skin I see this CSS for positioning:

.mediawiki .mw-notification-area-layout {
