Menus don't display in Firefox

Postby furcat » Thu Jun 19, 2008 7:49 pm

I have created a layout and have used Easy Button to make a vertical fly-out menu. It works just fine in Explorer, but the flyouts don't work in Firefox. In fact, I don't even get a pointer for some of the menus with Firefox. Here is the link to my web layout:

I really need some help fast, if possible, since I am up against a deadline, and I have already spent hours making this menu.

For line 3 to 5 you have this:
Code: Select all
<LINK REL="STYLESHEET" HREF="round_corner.css" CHARSET="ISO-8859-1" TYPE="text/css">
<LINK REL="STYLESHEET" HREF="layout.css" CHARSET="ISO-8859-1" TYPE="text/css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="menu_files/cbcscbinsmenu.css" type="text/css" />

The first link path is good. The last two do not find their files.

Line 184 is looking for "cbjscbinsmenu.js" but doesn't find it.

Have to say the menu is the same in Firefox and IE for me, in the fact the it doesn't work in either.
And also don't get the hand pointer on the same items in both browsers.

This interesting behaviour is caused by FireFox html renedring, more specifically the way FireFox tries to fix HTML errors.
The <strong> tag displayed in DOM tree is inserted by FireFox for each <li> element, even though it should be only in the beginning of the HTML document.

Simple fix: Remove <strong> from your html.

Hint: use WeBuilder 2008 for creating HTML, since it will display HTML errors instantly ;)
