  1. All of the top level menus do not function unless one clicks on a sub-topic,
    on a desktop, a top level menu click produces a full list of the sub-topics for review

    Smartphones get a further reduced version of the site (hamburger button), so I'm sure you're talking about tablet view. The main menu on tablets require two clicks/taps to get to the sections (Drop down + Latest submenu). This is by design because of the inconsistency we've found in Android/iOS browser behaviors with hover-style drop down menus.

    Ouch, that is so obscure of a behavior - - doubt anyone would think to try double touch.

    As to drop-downs, they should have been disabled on mobile devices, and HOVER has always been difficult in porting and was recommended to use mouseOver() & mouseOut() instead.

    I didn't mean double tapping, but two separate taps... first on the drop down, then on a link within the drop down links:

    tablet menu.
