Dear Expert:
My Fireworks pop-up menus are not showing up when I go live (except in IE), even thought they appear in all of my preview browsers (IE, Netscape, and Mozilla).  I have already enabled the javascript, but still nothing.  An example of the problem is webpage: http://depts.washington.edu/hmcrt/Information.htm.  Any solutions?  Thank you. -hp

If you look at your code you'll see your images are referenced to your hard drive instead of their web location, like this:

file:///C|/Personal/Lukehart/My Webs/R&T Directory/spacer.gif

<script language="JavaScript1.2" src="file:///C|/Personal/Lukehart/My Webs/R&T Directory/mm_menu.js"></script>

This line is trying to call the menu script. Since it is looking for the file in your hardrive it doesn't work on the web. You need to fix all this bad urls before your page behaves like it is suppoused to.

You can remove the bad folder paths using the Find & Replace dialog in DW (Ctrl + F)
An example:
******************
Search for SOURCE CODE:
 - src="file:///C|/Personal/Lukehart/My Webs/R&T Directory/ -

Replace with:
 (nothing)
******************

Make sure you backup your files before making changes ;)

Good luck,

Esopo.

CORRECTION:

******************
Search for SOURCE CODE:
src="file:///C|/Personal/Lukehart/My Webs/R&T Directory/

Replace with:
scr="
******************

That will remove the location folder, make sure you get the paths right.
