Context Menu stops gifs animating

I was just picking which Milonic logo to place in the links on my webste, and I right-clicked one to go to 'Save Picture As...' and of course the Milonic Context menu appeared.

In order to save the file I had to select the 'disable this menu' option in the Milonic menu, to be able to access the Windows menu.

However, I noticed that when I disabled the milonic menu, the pretty animated Milonic logos stop animating.

Is this a bug :?:

Andy will have to answer this one, and I'm going to add to it.

I'm not seeing the new menu at all on my Mac. Yes, it is a Mac with a 2-button mouse, and right-click brings up the usual menus for that action, but not the new Andy-contextual.

Its caused because that link on the context menu calls some javascript. I am guessing you are using IE...right? There is a small bug in IE that when javascript is called a certain way, it halts all animated gifs on the page. Not sure why! See for alittle more info I gave about it awhile back.

I have been told that if mouse events returns false,, then this problem should be prevented. Note that IE6 is definetly affect by this issue, IE7 and Firefox have no issues.

Will this issue be fixed. It is causing usability issues in our application resulting in complaints from our clients.

Is there a high-priority support line, for paying customers?

If you have a current pro or above license then you can set up a support ticket, however, I'm not sure what Milonic can do to fix a browser bug?

This has been taken care of in the newest version of the menu.

We are hoping for a release either today (Monday April 2 2007) or tomorrow
