Hello,

My post is in reference to this site (in development): http://www.concretewind.com/test/tb/index.html

In IE6 the global nav bar is wildly sensitive. Each global nav item has a drop down list and that drop down list gets generated even when the mouse is an inch below the bar (and its not usually even the drop down list directly above it.)

We've run out of ideas for how to fix this issue and so I was wondering if anyone in this forum would have any ideas.

Thank you

Hello,

Unfortunately, the other developer working on the project disabled the dropdowns, so you won't be able to see the dropdown in effect. I'll repost when that's been enabled again and see if anyone has any ideas.

Thank you!

Sounds like you are using visibility hidden to hide the drop down, which still reserves the area as opposed to display none.
Hard to tell without seeing it in action.

Hi, New Devlopment url:

Hi,

New Devlopment url: http://www.concretewind.com/test/tb/version3/index.html

We are using display:none to hide the dropdown. I did search and it wasn't answered.

We revised the code and yet still some people viewing the site on IE6/XP (that's the browser they use and they can't switch) still report over sensitive dropdowns when they place their mouse under the horizontal nav up to about 1 inch below it.

I was hoping that someone could take another look and perhaps offer a solution (especially if they've encountered the same bug as well).
