Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, Netscape frameset issue.

Hi there

I've got a website with a frameset. The top frame loads a flash menu and the bottom frame loads normal HTML content. The design works with IE but it doesn't work with any of the other browsers such as Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, Netscape. I've tested the menu by loading it in it's own frame and when I click on a link it fires up a new window with the content. However when the menu is loaded in the frameset the link don't work anymore. Is there anything I'm doing wrong?
Another point to make is that the links are calling external pages to be displayed in the bottom frame.

Please help.

Hi

To make sure all the links calling external pages load in the bottom frame, in your links put a target="bottomframename" in them. We can't help you too much because all of these browsers do support frames (most even iframes). We can only assume it's a problem in your code because it only works on IE, well known for sloppy coding. Can you post your code for us to see?

Regards,
