Suggestions needed for a an expanding tree menu

P: n/a
I'm using an expanding tree menu based on the design from Dieter
Bungers GMD (www.gmd.de) and infovation (www.infovation.de) named
displayToc.js. The problem is that the script isn't working properly
in Firefox, although it's working without problems in IE 5.5 & 6.0 In
Firefox any file which isn't in the same directory isn't found, so the
images are missing and the links don't launch. It may be something
simple, but I don't have the experience yet to be able to locate the
problem.

I'm not sure it's worth trying to troubleshoot the problem or if I'd
be better off just getting a more updated version which works properly
in multiple browsers. There are a lot of tree menus found doing a
search of Google, so I'm hoping that someone can cut my research and
recommend one which they've had success with using both browsers.

I have looked at the URLs named above but don't see a tree menu there.
If you want help you will need to post a URL where we can see the code.
As for trying to figure out why it doesn't work with Firefox, have you
checked the Firefox JavaScript console whether it shows any errors?

Try this one out.
Each main item has a submenu which expands when clicked on.
All others are collapsed.
Easy to change.
Works in NS, IE and FF.

Why would the OP want to use something as badly written as that? Toby
Inkster's (<URL:http://examples.tobyinkster.co.uk/menu/menu2>) is better,
though the script is a little crude. I suggested an alternative
(<URL:http://groups.google.co.uk/groups?q=g:thl4113530633d&&selm=opsf4q5nt8x13kvk%4 0atlantis>)
though it could be improved, too. For example, init could use
getElementsByTagName to hide the menu items, rather than requiring all of
the sections to be listed.

Replace ".invalid" with ".uk" to reply by e-mail.

Mine works well, and I've had a lot of people implement it easily and
quickly:
