    Drop Downs incompatibility with FF:

    I am designing a site for a client and they want drop down menus. However, all the scripts I have and have seen only work for IE, not FireFor.

    Here's is what the site looks like:

    Anyone know a dropdown script with this look that is compatible for IE and FireFox?
    I run companies.

    I run a blog too.

    Hi,

    Take a look at the X library (written by Mike Foster here on SitePoint).
    An example of a simple drop-down menu can be found here.

    Yours, Erik.

    Sothinks menus are easy to use and work BUT they are about as UN SEO FRIENDLY as you can get so if your concerned about that (or your customer is) your going to want to go with a more CSS / DOM related drop down.... I own the program and have used it (really quite easy I might add) but I am much more concerned about SEO these days so I am moving away from it... IF you want to see one of them in action here's the last site I used it on http://jazzizbistro.com/ ........ to see the code Im speaking of (I moved it into a js file) you can see that here http://jazzizbistro.com/scripts/stm31.js ........ it really is scarey but if you look at the button functions I made (below the main functions) you will see the code that produces the actual buttons.

    and before anyone looks at that code PLEASE remember it was THE LAST table laden / js driven site I did (before my awakening to CSS and tableless sites).. I am not proud of that source AT ALL.. :'(

    I haven't yet been able to play with the X system but I have heard GREAT things about it! You also have brothercake's menus which I have played with a bit... www.brothercake.com

    Thanks for the review DC! We need more of these reports, they are very helpful to menu users and extremely helpful to us menu authors.

    Actually, the X Library is my main work. The menus and other toys/widgets are just examples of using the library altho I have had fun with the toys

    Yep, brothercake's work is top-notch
