How to prevent menus from dissapearing

What is the trick to avoid my menus from disappearing?

Logged in as admin no problem but as a user, problems.

In order to make the menus reappear the user must click on any buddypress menu ACTIVITY, MEMBERS, GROUPS,BLOGS.

The categories listed MISC, MUSIC, TOP RATED are all located under mysite.com/blog/categories/

I also use membership plugin and the disappearing menus are all checked in positive rules along with their respective pages for this user level and the use can access these pages just fine once they appear.
