View Full Version : Hidden DIV anchor not selectable in FF

1) Script Title: Animated Collapsible DIV v2.01

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/animatedcollapse.htm

3) Describe problem: Works in IE7, NOT on FF 3.x - Use Flash Africa Map to drop to 'Country Named' Bookmark Anchor in a Table Cell. Once dropped down to correct Table Row, clicking the desired Country Name toggles list of members in that country. In FF, it only works if that particular DIV is already expanded. Works in IE7 whether the DIV is visible or not. (In the Flash, I have the complete URL string to work around known FF bug of improper handing of Relative URL.) (I stripped out Drop Down and Pull Up functions. It DOES work on IE7 so I am not inclined to think the modifications caused the problem. But maybe? )

Spooky action at a distance can be observed at

(My CCA site home page is indebted to DD for two different DD solutions, one of which goes back a few years. Thank You.)

I resolved the issue. The problem was not in the scripting, but in the way I was setting up the Flash movie. Additionally, apparently, IE7 and FF3 process name attributes differently. IE7 works with just a single reference to the name attribute (already) stated in the javascript, and FF3 started working when I added in a separate anchor placement tag before the script call.

The script works well. Thanks to the developer.
