    As you can see the dropdown menu goes behind the ad & it's quite hard to read the different sections of the menu. That's with Firefox 1.0.6 on Windows. IE does not show that problem.

    It doens't bother me that much but it might limit the traffic to the areas available via that menu, especially as more & more people use Firefox. ;)

    Thanks for your input Didou. This is a known bug in our current implementation of the drop down menu, but you should know we already have a new more robust version coming soon that combines DHTML and Java.

    I have done quite a bit of research and there is no workaround for it using DHTML alone. The problem arises when there is flash content where the menu is supposed to show.

    The new code using Java fixes this 90% + of the time, which still I hope won't pose a problem since we will be making the main menu (for example "TS Extra") clickable, with the option to show you a new page with all the sections/pages under that main entry.
