Bing's Home Page Picture Changer Missing For Some

One of the most talked about features of Bing, Microsoft search engine, is not the search features at all but rather the pictures they show on their home page. It truly keeps people coming back every day. But sometimes people miss the picture shown on a day and they want to go back in history and find it.

Because of that, a while back, Microsoft added a feature to see past images. They added a mouse over feature, where you hover your mouse over the right bottom corner of the image and it lets you scroll back in time to see past images. Here is a picture of that scroll feature:

The issue is, for a certain period of time, that feature went missing for many. In fact, I have been noticing several threads on this topic, including this one at the Bing Forums complaining it is missing. I personally always saw it, but then I noticed how this is working in the US, where I am based, but not elsewhere. One user said:

It's only working for the US version. Not for the other, inluding the Canadian (out-of-beta) version!

Kristin from Microsoft replied that she will "make sure to pass along to the Home page team." So if you cannot see it, hopefully you will be able to see it soon.

I loved your home page pictures, but I can't see anymore. What can I do? My Aser notebook showed them before.
