tried to capture the behaviour in a photograph...see attached.
black bars jump over the screen when a button is pressed or menus are opened. 2d unity works fine...just the 3d version has these problems.

i had to run apport in unity 2d as the regular unity wouldn't let me log in this time (screen froze but i had mouse movement) hope that doesn't mess things up.
took the attached video the last time i got logged into 3d successfully.
