Submenu Position Problem in Firefox


Poster: bbaxter
Dated: Friday August 17 2007 - 18:42:49 BST

I'm having a problem with the submenu position of a vertical menu only in firefox, IE and safari both work fine.
The submenu appears to open up in the correct position, but if you scroll down, go back up to the same sub menu, it opens up above it's parent, and is impossible to select (as you can't move the cursor from it's parent over to it)

I tried updating to the new version (I just copied the newest milonic_src.js over the older version) but this didn't have any effect. Any ideas?


Here's the menudata.js file, there's a lot of code though, but maybe it helps.

Hi,

Take a look at the top of the file up where the subOffset and such are. Add fixMozillaZIndex=true; there and see if that helps.

Ruth

fixMozillaZIndex=true;

I'm afraid adding fixMozillaZIndex=true; didn't resolve anything. The problem again is the vertical positioning of the sub menu in firefox. When the user scrolls down the menu position goes crazy, and not by just a few pixels, it's way above where it should be.

Here is the code where each menu is created, just in case you see anything in here that may mess something up, it's inside a table but I dont think that is the problem...

</span><script type="text/javascript">
document.getElementById("ctxBILLUS110HCR000017531").onmouseover=handleOverEvent;
function handleOverEvent(aEvent){
var myEvent = aEvent ? aEvent : window.event;
ctxmenu_sid = "BILL:US:110:HCR:00001";
ctxmenu_session = "110";
return popup('billmenu', 'ctxBILLUS110HCR000017531');
}
document.getElementById("ctxBILLUS110HCR000017531").onmouseout=handleOutEvent;
function handleOutEvent(aEvent){
return popdown();
}

</script>

Hi,

I have no idea, most of what you have is beyond my knowledge. If you can link to a page with the menu, I can see if I can figure out what's going on. The FixMozillaZindex=true; will only work with the newer versions of the menu.

I can usually figure out what the problem is if I have the page with which to work. That way I have any css, the page, and the menu files.

My only other suggestion is that you contact Milonic direct for help since they would actually understand all you posted :)

ok I can try that. I'm worried that this is a problem on their side and thus is going to be impossible to fix. I though that you were with milonic! lol... you have a link to the corporate website where I can get ahold of them?
