Version 5.66 and Firefox (On Edit)

I recently upgraded from version 5.63 to 5.66 and noticed that the submenus become detacted from the main menu if you scroll down slightly and then scroll back up while using the Firefox browser version 1.0. Works ok in Internet Explorer.

I have the menu positioned within a table and I'm using using relative positioning. I am a new user so my data file could be incorrect but it did not do this in version 5.63. I have since gone back to version 5.63 but my data file can be viewed here

If I may restate the problem again, using Firefox, if you scroll the page down slightly keeping the menu still visible and then scroll back up, the sub menus when opened remain in the position in which the page was scrolled down to and become detacted from the main menu when the page is scrolled back up.

If not clear, please ask and I will try to restate the problem again.


On Edit: I don't think I explained the behavior correctly above. You can see an example of this behavior on Melonic's site just scroll down an inch or so using the Firefox browser and open the submenus. I don't how it works with other browsers; works right in IE.

If I understood what you are saying, I'm not seeing that behavior in either Safari or Firefox on the Mac.

I experience the behavior in Firefox Ver 1.0 on the PC, Windows XP SP1. I don't have a Mac. Thanks for checking John. How about on a PC with Firefox?

I have temporarily posted a couple of screen shots here

As you can see the submenu has seperated from the main menu and is in the middle of the page. Main menu being the green links at the top.

Hi Ken,
The following comments are just so everyone has as much information as possible.

The menu3 sample you have given for the link and the screenshots is not what you are using. That is a pop function menu. That's not to say it should do that, but you might want to check the table bound sample9on Milonic and see if it does the same because you are using table bound.

I have an old Firefox when it was Firebird [.07] and I'm not seeing the problem you note on your site, it's working just fine. However, at the pop function sample3 after scrolling the page an inch as you suggested, I did notice that the samples drop down, which is a scroll menu, was really out of position.

I forgot to mention, that there's a pre-release version 5.67. I don't know that whatever has been tweaked would fix this problem, but you might try that.

Ruth, you are correct. I am using table bound sample 9. I also don't see the erroneous behavior on the Milonic site for sample 9 using Firefox but I see it for sample 3. This detacted submenu still occurs on my site when using Versions 5.66 and the prerelease version 5.67, which I also tried.

You did not see it on my site because I reverted back to version 5.63 in which it doesn't occur. I am obviously doing something wrong. How can I troubleshoot this? Should I leave version 5.66 up on my site in hopes that someone more knowledgeable than me can take a look at it? Or should I contact Milonic support?

I currently have version 5.66 up on my site. Any help with this would be most appreciated.

First, I'd put the 5.63 back up so the site runs correctly. Next, I'd create a folder, menutest or something like that, and I'd upload my main page, and all the necessary files for it and the milonic 5.66 files including the menu data file in that one folder. Then drop a link here to that test page so anyone with FireFox 1.0 and a PC can do the testing. I'm sorry I can't and the page works fine with Firebird .07 Make sure you put all the menu files in that folder so they don't get confused with the 5.63 ones.

It's OK I've just found a bug.

It's related to DOCTYPE's and version 5.67 should fix it.

Version 5.67 fixed my problem. Milonic tech support is phenomenal. Thank you Ruth and John for helping me sort this problem out. Thanks Andy for the fix. Appreciate it.
