Menu links with different browsers

Hey just wanted to give some feedback and introduce myself.  First off, great site, i have been using it as a resource in my self-training to become a dba.  I was more sql server oriented, but now my interest is oracle.
 
Soooo, I noticed that your site works fine with Explorer, but when I use Firefox, the main menu bar  
(Portal    About    White Papers...), the list always drops down below "Portal".  In other words, I hover the mouse over "Weblog / Forum" and the item list appears below "Portal".  This only seems to happen on the main page.  I just tried it while on this "start new topic" page and it appears fine.  Its no big deal, I just notice stuff like this because I work in QA.
 
I have run into an issue in 10G OEM wherein I could not login using explorer and had to use firefox.  It was because my server hostname had an _ in it and IE didnt like it.
 
Thanks for this site!

hi,
 
Thanks very much for your kind words and also the feedback on my menus. I was aware that I had some troubles with them when used in different browsers. I have plans to re-implement them so that they work in all browswers and also fix some of the other layout issues. At the moment I don't have too much time to do it. I hope to have a look in the coming weeks. Sorry for the delay..
 
cheers

Hi, Pete, i'll join to JNit, your site is excellent.
Regarding your menu's - it was interesting for me to find out, what is the problem, as i actually start to get a rid of DHTML ( what is in turn due to my increased interest to HTMLDB Wink ).
So, i suppose, you change in the menu.js following snippet (lines 43 - 51)
 
///// Positions and shows the menu
if (oldDomSMenu != domSMenu) {
 domSMenu.left = menuLeft;
 domSMenu.top = menuTop;
 domSMenu.visibility = 'visible';
domSMenu.zIndex = '100';
oldDomSMenu = domSMenu;
}
 
to  
 
///// Positions and shows the menu
if (oldDomSMenu != domSMenu) {
 domSMenu.left = menuLeft+'px';
 domSMenu.top = menuTop;
 domSMenu.visibility = 'visible';
domSMenu.zIndex = '100';
oldDomSMenu = domSMenu;
}
 
It seems, without 'px' ( or whatever) , Firefox simply ignore "left" as syntactically wrong. If you could test this change and my suggestion don't break anything ( as i said, i'm not web developer) - i would appreciate your proper working menu's.
Probably "top" should be also with 'px', but , it doesn't affect the position of menus...
 
Best regards

Hi max,
 
I have just made the change as you suggest. It doesn't seem to make any difference to IE, I dont have firefox installed, if you can let me know if it works that would be great.
 
cheers

Hi, Pete, i was a little baffled, because i don't discovered any difference - menu's were wrong, but after the page was refreshed - yes now it works exactly as in IE ( also they are properly positioned now).
Thank you.

Hi Max,
 
Thanks very much for your quick feedback. I am glad that the fix works. Thanks also for suggesting it, you have saved me some valuable time..Smiley, I am still planning a revamp of the layout and menus ect. I want to get to the point where the layout is completely css based and works in all browsers.  
 
Not much time at the moment I am afraid to tweak the site. I hope to have some soon as I have quite a few plans to add stuff to the site to make it more useful t people.
 
thanks again
 
cheers
