View Full Version : JS/CSS compatability trouble

I am using a menu bar based on js/css, and it works fine on my computer, in any browser but after complaints, I checked on other computers, and it seems to have issues in all other copies of IE and, strangely, one copy of firefox (although it is rendered slightly differently in Opera, this isn't a real problem).

The menu bar is a fairly simple dropdown and slide one. When the problem occurs, the menus, rather than disappearing when the mouse has been removed from the item, it flashes rapidly, around 4 times per second on the first one, then progressively faster when multiple menus are flashing, until it hits the screen refresh rate. It is also impossible, when the error is present, to open the sliding sub-sub-menus.

Anyone know what could be causing this problem?

var menu=function(){
var t=15,z=50,s=6,a;
function dd(n){this.n=n; this.h=[]; this.c=[]}
a=c; var w=document.getElementById(p), s=w.getElementsByTagName('ul'), l=s.length, i=0;
var h=s[i].parentNode; this.h[i]=h; this.c[i]=s[i];
h.onmouseover=new Function(this.n+'.st('+i+',true)');
h.onmouseout=new Function(this.n+'.st('+i+')');
var c=this.c[x], h=this.h[x], p=h.getElementsByTagName('a')[0];
clearInterval(c.t); c.style.overflow='hidden';
p.className+=' '+a;
if(!c.mh){c.style.display='block'; c.style.height=''; c.mh=c.offsetHeight; c.style.height=0}
else{c.style.zIndex=z; z++; c.t=setInterval(function(){sl(c,1)},t)}
}else{p.className=p.className.replace(a,''); c.t=setInterval(function(){sl(c,-1)},t)}
function sl(c,f){
var h=c.offsetHeight;

c.style.opacity=o; c.style.filter='alpha(opacity='+(o*100)+')';

It is based on a dynamic drive script, I had edited it a lot, but after finding this problem reverted it to the original in an attempt to clear it, which failed.
