"Explore More" feature

Is there a way in site preferences to set the "Explore more" sidebar option on an actor's page to always be expanded and stay that way. Works fine for IMDb titles, but for some odd reason with a person page it opens for a few seconds and then closes, not leaving enough time to click on a sub menu feature.

Hello Enfant Terrible, (great name :) ) 
The trouble is that there's just so much information for most people or titles, it can't all be shown at once. The "Explore More" or "See full cast" features gives us some control over how much is seen at once. 
The Site Preferences let you specify the Number of TV episodes from the same series to display and various other things.

Thanks for the problem report.  We are unable to reproduce this here so it is likely to be a local issue, sorry.  The best things to try are (a) disable all browser plug-ins, especially any ad-blockers as these can interfere with the display of our pages (b) see if the page loads on another browser on the same system (c) see if the page loads on another system if you have access to one.  If you are still experiencing problems please let us know the details of the systems and browsers which you have tried and upload a screen-grab or two demonstrating the problem. Thanks.

Odd. The feature is supposed to work the same way on title pages and name pages.

I think when Enfant Terrible says titles he is referring to title reference view, which has a static right-hand menu.

This is different from the menu with "Explore More" in name pages (and also in title subpages). I know exactly what he means: the menu appears in full while the page is loading.

That's a good point. I also use title reference view, yet I still didn't notice (or don't remember noticing), probably because I use a home brew browser enhancement that forces the sidebar to be loaded expanded until I click the "Show less" button.
