    Problems with Menu Bar Vertical and Firefox

    tuc32499

      The menu bar looks fine in IE.  When viewing in Firefox the submenus are not displaying correctly.  I can only see the edge of them. Please help!

      Thanks Mary

          Mary,

           

          You have added overflow: hidden; to one of your menubar styles. That is why the submenus are, well, hidden!

           

          Go to this rule and get the hidden overflow out of the stylesheet:

           

           

          ul.MenuBarVertical li
          {
               margin: 0;
               padding: 0;
               list-style-type: none;
               font-size: 100%;
               position: relative;
               text-align: left;
               cursor: pointer;
               width: 12em;
               background-color: #FFFFFF;
          /*               overflow: hidden;     delete this */
          /*     border-color: #000;
          */     outline-color: #333;
               outline-style: none;
               outline-width: thin;
               border-top-color: #000;
               border-right-color: #000;
               border-bottom-color: #000;
               border-left-color: #000;
               border-top-style: none;
               border-right-style: solid;
               border: 000000;
               border-bottom-style: solid;
               border-left-style: solid;
               border-top-width: thin;
               border-right-width: thin;
               border-bottom-width: thin;
          }
          

           

          The reason this hides the submenus is because submenus are lists nested in the top menu items. By their nature, they overflow from the extent of the top menu. By hiding them, the only part that shows up is the small portion that lies within the extent of the top menu item.
