When playing music, the media bar doesn't show the progress bar. I can't fast-forward and so forth. According to the BB 101 guide, it should pop up/hide when you click the screen. However, it just never shows up. Are others having this issue? Is there an optioning for this?

If I understand your issue, you don't need to press/click on the screen while media is playing but lightly touch the screen to bring up the media controls. Then once that is brought up, highlight/click on the progress bar and move your finger where you want the media to play from.
I hope this helped you out.

I have the same problem, although with enough clicking and brushing of the screen I can get it to appear, albeit often only briefly. The progress bar does work but it is very temperamental. To be honest this feature of the Storm is crap. FF & RW etc is a key requirement of listening to music and if it can't be instantly and easily controlled there is no point in having it, period.
Oh, and that's without the volume control button deciding to work as Next Track/Previous track. The only way I can adjust the volume is by going into video mode, where it seems to work.
Overall I'm pleased with my Storm but when basic features like this don't work easily or at all, it reflects very badly on RIM. I do hope they have someone reading these posts and those on other forums 24/7 because unless they fix these bugs and other usability issues quickly, the Storm is going to die a death, with the iPhone and others walking all over it.

The light touch works, but not all the time. Thanks for the feedback. At least I can get the progess bar to come up sometimes.
The volume control has short cuts. If you press and hold the volume key up/down, it will either go to the previous/next track. If you press a single time, it should adjust the volume.

Try 184.108.40.206, you will see the progress bar, I did.
But wait, it completely randomizes where it restarts even if bar says
it is playing say at 27:44, it actually is starting from beginning!
I mostly listen to audio books and segments are 45-60 minutes
long (MP3), and it completely screws up. It also screws up when
the notification (message, phone ring, etc.) arrives, it stops playing
and restarts (after a ding or say phone conversation) and the
progress bar says where it left off but it is actually playing from
