Javascript dropdown problem in IE 6 and IE7

9 New Member
Hello javascript folks,

PROBLEM: Javascript dropdown problem in IE 6 and IE7
DESCRIPTION: menu falls behind a container box on web page
COMMENTS: It works fine in Firefox but not in IE 6/7 versions

Notice this URL using IE6/7:

site/welcome_to_IIMA A_training_conf erence.html

You'll see a javascript scrollbar container box, holding the main content. You will also see a javascript
horizontal menu -- starting with "Home" / "About the Conference" / "The Venue" and so on.

Now, go ahead and mouse over on "About the Conference" and others. See how the drop down menu falls behind
the main content container box? The menu is not readable, then menu should be on top of page content, not
hidden behind.

The javascript drop down menu works perfectly fine over static HTML, visit the URL below to see how the
menu should look:


Additional Notes: One developer mentioned there is a compatibilty problem with IE6/7 and overlapping javascript menu with scroll box. The developer did some research, mentioning to eleminate the javascript scrollbar altogether.
Customer wants both menu's and scroll box intact.

OK, if anyone has ideas about how to fix this problem, please let me know.

Try specifying the z-index to be higher than that of the main content container.

Hi, In one of my pages, I use javascript (AJAX) to populate one mulitple select field based on user's click event on another control. I noticed that when I navigate back to this page by clicking browser's "Back" button, the changes made to the multiple select is not preserved. (It shows the initial value). While all the other user selections are preserved. Firefox seems fine. How do I workaround this issue for IE?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
