    FireWorks/DreamWeaver IE Compatibility Issues

    markestephan
      I made a website in Fireworks/Dreamweaver, and oddly enough it works great in Firefox, and almost kills IE. It certainly dosen't load well and the site dosen't work. Flash dosen't load poperly etc....

      You can see the Beta site here:

      I believe it has to do with the drop-down menus created in Fireworks.

      I ran the browser compatibility check and a lot of errors came up with IE not being compatiable with the drop-down menus that Fireworks created. I also got some errors about compatibility with Firefox, but they didn't seem to effect the site as a whole.

      My question is how do I fix this?

      I went into Fireworks and couldn't find anyway to export the titlebar with drop-down menus that would be IE compatible. I didn't even see any option about broswer compatiiblity.

      So what can I do? Please help!

          I can't get the menu's to work correctly in FF - WinXP. If I hover the
          mouse over Company > Methodology, the menu disappears.

          Might want to take a look at menu systems from Project Seven. They are
          compatible with IE, FF and other browsers. They are a much more elegant
          solution.
