View Full Version : Chrome CSS Menu - Firebug reporting error

05-10-2007, 06:24 PM
Chrome CSS Drop Down Menu (2.01)


First off thanks for the great script. One day I'll understand how it all works when my js is up to speed! Now for the problem I am seeing which I can reproduce every time in two different places.

Step 1: Drop down one of my menus and make a selection.
Step 2: Leave the mouse pointer EXACTLY where it was below the menu bar.
Step 3: Wait for the page to fully load.
Step 4: Move the mouse pointer downwards and out of the area where the drop down would be if displayed.

Firebug reports the following:

cssdropdown.dropmenuobj has no properties
chrome.js (line 109)

which on my version is:

this.delayhide=setTimeout("cssdropdown.dropmenuobj.style.visibility='hidden'",this.disappeardelay) //hide menu

As I say my js is not good enough yet to understand the problem. Anyone know of any way to stop the error or the error being reported?

Well, I don't have Firebug installed, but I assume the error would also pop up in Firefox's error console. Anyhow, please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

Of course. Would have been the obvious thing to do...


This is a WordPress site. Try the 'About', 'Plugins' or 'Forum' menus. I'd select the top item and it does look like you need the page to finish loading.

Thanks for taking a look...

I get an "unable to connect' error when loading the site. I'll try again later.

Sorry to hear that. Unusual. It's Dreamhost....

Did you manage to get a look at this behaviour?
