On a small web site that one of our assistant has created using FrontPage for our firm, we have noticed a "click" problem with our button links. Some clients (not all) using IE6 have to click twice on a link button to get directed to the link. Here is what happens exactly:
- when positionning the mouse over the button, the cursor will become a "hand" (instead of an arrow), and a highlight box will be drawn around the button, but the color of the button will not change as it should. Also, If you leave the mouse over the button for a few seconds, IE will display a little box saying "Click to activate and use this control".
- the first click will then change the color of the button, and the cursor will become an "arrow"
- the next click will then bring you to the proper page
We've tested this on clients using Netscape and Firefox and the links work as they should (so far): 1 click and you get the link. The buttons were created using Hover Buttons in FP.
Is this a IE configuration/security issue on the clients that has to be set ? Or is it something wrong the way we have created the Hover Buttons in FP ?
