Dropdowns blocked as pop-ups in IE8
Posted on 2009-05-27
How can I prevent Internet Explorer 8 from blocking drop-down menus (form selects) is if they were pop-ups? Or, is it just me? I couldn't find anything on this topic online, and it seems it would generate a lot of conversation if other people were experiencing it ...
I am not much familiar with IE8 yet, so I visited a few random sites to see if their drop-down menus behaved the same way as mine. I found that I get the "pop-up blocked" message each time I click on a drop-down menu. I haven't been able to modify my IE pop-up blocker settings to avoid this, and even turning pop-up blocker off doesn't work.
My forms are in ColdFusion 8, although that wasn't necessarily the case with the other sites I tested. Ideas? Thanks!
