Hi -

I have made a simple page where by there is a menu which drops down a div on mouseover using jquery. It is valid html 5 and contains no JS errors.

I have a new SS installation but the drop down does not work in ie 8 or FF 5 but works in ie 7.

I know this is a pretty broad question but does anyone know of any issues surrounding SS that might prevent my dropdown working?

Check your javascript error console, do you get errors in the browsers that don't work?

Thanks for trying to help and replying. It turns out it was my own stupidity and I had set a DIV to the wrong height which obscured the drop down.
