Drop Down Sub Menu Items Disappear In Safari

Hello Experts:

I have a puzzle that I am unable to figure out.  I am hoping some genius out there can help me.  I have a CSS drop down menu on my website (http://sleepamazing.com/) which appears to work fine in IE8 and Firefox 3.6.3, and also seems to work for the most part in Safari 4.0.5, except that in the submenu under "Information", the items disappear when you hover over a row.  I set up columns using div's, although I tried using tables and the effect is very similar.  All submenus without these columns work fine.

I am using XP Professional, Service Pack 3.  If anyone out there can help me, I would be greatly appreciative

Hi OmniUnlimited,
Please try adding overflow:hidden to the class .column_container as below
.column_container {
	clear: both;
	float: left;
	overflow:hidden;
	width: 452px;
}

Alright, I don't think you need the float and the clear for the .column_container since it doesn't come next to other floated elements.

removing the float and clear with adding overflow hidden fixed the issue, try the below, tested in 4.0.5

Cheers
.column_container {
	overflow:hidden;
	width: 452px;
}
