Website programming

Hi, im developing a website (very basic with js floating menu) in html. When ever i open a browser (IE) i get an active content blocker and i'm unable to see my menu bar. This is more of a browser protection function, but very irritating for UE. Need inputs on how can change code to avoid this for general hosting. Same code attached below..


My menu code is:
