FireFox Followscroll Sub Menu Issues

I have two issues I would appreciate any help on. I've searched the mboards for answers but can't seem to find what I need. I'm using the latest codebase (5.732).

Problem #1: The sub-menus for a vertical (followscroll=1) menu do not show up next to the menu if you scroll down the page in FF. The sub menu's are left behind half way up the page when I scroll.

Here is my code for the main menu
followscroll = "1,0,1";

Problem #2: In IE 6 the menu flickers a lot when i mouseover the main nav. It was a bigger problem earlier but when I set position=absolute it seemed to fix the jumping problems.

Any help would be much appreciated!

G'day all,

I am building a horizontal menu and have exactly the same problem with my sub/sub menus not scrolling with the rest of the menu. I use Firefox version 1.5 Beta.

Under the Heading 'Wildflowers' is a Item called 'Perth Hills' with sub menus under that called Winter and Spring.

The Winter and Spring submenus will not scroll with the rest of the menu.

I have the latest version of Milonic. Version 5.732

Everything works fine in IE.

Can anyone steer us in the right direction? Or do you need more information?

I found the solution.

Top line of the menu_data.js

Toggled true to false. Like the comment said.

fixMozillaZIndex=false; //Fixes Z-Index problem with Mozilla browsers but causes odd scrolling problem, toggle to see if it helps.

I am using listmenus.js and when I toggle this to false it causes my menus to not become scrollable when they overflow.

I have hacked the listmenus.js a little to force the overflow:

_y6+="with(milonic=new menuname('"+_mN+"')){"

_y6+="with(milonic=new menuname('"+_mN+"')){ overflow=\"scroll\";"

This just makes the overflow=scroll in all submenus. However when fixMozillaZIndex=false this does not work.

The scroll bars do show up - but only when your at the very top of the page. If you scroll down a little bit they dont show up.

If i set the menu to followscroll=1 it seems to work correctly. However this is not what I want. I want the menu to stick to the top of the page so I use position=fixed. When I set this instead of followscroll, thats when I start getting problems.
