    FW 8 popup-menu in CSS problem with IE7 & Safari

    patrick99
      Hi,
      hope that anyone out there got some ideas in my issue. I was already searching the forum for advice, but couldn't find meaningful infos.

      Here is my problem:
      I designed a page in FW8 (Mac) with a nice popup-menu. I exported this thing into DW8 having set the option to export the menu as CSS and slices to layers. Then I rearranged the html File and included some editable regions, as it was to be used as an template.
      Everything works fine in Firefox but IE7 and Safari experience some problems.
      The popup-layers are displayed behind the main text-area and not in front of it - this makes navigation a bit complicated.
      So teh menu is displayed with text and everything, but behind the main text.

      What I tried:
      I tried to reset the z-Index of the popup-layers to values below 10 (were set to 500) - didn't help.
      I gave every single item a z-index - didn't help.
      I gave the main text area an z-index of 0 or -1 - made the layer disappear.
      I reexported the whole thing - made me just crazy.
      I worked through the css file for errors - maybe I'm not to good in CSS ;)
      I checked the forums, but could only find issues where the menu was not displayed at all or the text was missing - doesn't apply.
      -- no more ideas :(

      I really appreciate your help! Any comments welcome!

          I've had a similar problem, menus made in Fireworks 8 don't show up completely in ie7 for windows either. The menu shows up, but the text of submenus with submenus doesn't show up.

          I think it's a bug with ie7. It doesn't support javascript completely, nor does it css.

          Since your website has disappeared, I'm sorry I can't be of more help. I'm thinking of getting a "third party" submenu generator (but I can't find one that I can use my own images, yet)

            I don't think this is accurate. Each browser supports things differently,
            and CSS is no exception, but support for javascript is fairly reliable
            across the board.

            Then you are not looking in the right place. Go here -

            and examine their extensive collection of menu products.
