    It seems fine to me in IE9 in stadards mode and in compatibility mode. The menu you are using is an Adobe Spry menu so I'm not sure why anyone on this forum would not want to help you. If anything it is a simple z-index problem - though I cann duplicate it. If you still have problems send us a direct mail or telephone us and I'll try to duplicate your issue and give you a correct solution.

    As usual, Mr Sparber has come with the correct cause, he knows his products better than I do.


    The menu you are using is an Adobe Spry menu so I'm not sure why anyone on this forum would not want to help you.

    A pity that he did not give you a solution as he is also on this forum.


    The overlay for his product shows a rediculously high z-index value.

    .p7IRM01 .overlay {

          position: absolute;

          left: 0px;

         z-index: 999999;

          padding: 6px;

          width: 100%;

          background-image: url(img/p7IRMDark_transtotal.gif);

          background-color: transparent;

          text-align: left;


    The SpryMenuBar shows a modest value

    #MenuBar.MenuBar .SubMenuVisible {/* For Horizontal menubar only */

        top: 100%;    /* 100% is at the bottom of parent menuItemContainer */

        left:0px; /* 'left' may need tuning depending upon borders or padding applied to menubar MenuItemContainer or MenuItem,

                        and your personal taste.

                        0px will left align the dropdown with the content area of the MenuItemContainer. Assuming you keep the margins 0

                        on MenuItemContainer and MenuItem on the parent

                        menubar, making this equal the sum of the MenuItemContainer & MenuItem padding-left will align

                        the dropdown with the left of the menu item label.*/



    Either increase the value for the menubar or decrease the value for the PVII widget or maybe a bit of both. In the end, the SpryMenuBar should have the higher value.

    A rediculously (sic) high z-index it is. We usually try to compensate

    for other scripts folks might use on a page and the overlay class does

    not really need one that high. That value must have gotten overlooked,

    so thanks - we'll change that in the next free update. In any event, the

    user also needs to update to the latest version to ensure optimal

    performance against known Mozilla and Webkit image handling bugs:



    Thanks again, but you really can stop with the subtle digs. You may be

    altruistic by brand, but it would seem your heart is an entirely

    different matter. I'm not your enemy. The poster is free to contact us

    directly for a number of reasons, not the least of which to escape the

    drama that seems to be around when you, me, or my company intersect.


    This forum is still extremely tedious for me to monitor nearly as much

    as you do so I probably should have just not posted once I saw you were

    involved in the thread.
