Coldfusion Dropdown Menu Browser Incompatibility Issue with CSS

Hello All,

      I am trying to modify a version of the coldfusion drop down solution: http://www.stunicholls.com/menu/pro_dropdown_2.html

and I am noticing a strange incompatibility issue across browsers.  The sample drop down I am working on is here:  http://www.dmsecureweb5.com/wtf/include-headNew.cfm

If you mouse over a where it says "cases by category" a drop down list appears; this just fine. But if you mouse over the first choice "Adoption" a slide out description is supposed to appear: this works fine in IE but in firefox the box doesn't go around the entire description text.  I believe this is an issue involving the CSS of the pro dropdown but I am unsure how to modify it.  The CSS code can be downloaded from the above link or I can paste it here as necessary.  

This is an extremely time sensitive issue, so any help you can offer would be extremely appreciated; thanks!

Hi andrewaiello,
The problem is being caused by the height:18px for the sub level anchor along with the height:20px for the list item.

Try updating the 2 below rules in your CSS and see if it solves the issue for you.




#nav li:hover ul.sub li
{display:block; height:auto; position:relative; float:left; width:150px; font-weight:normal;}
#nav li:hover ul.sub li a
{display:block; font-size:11px; min-height:18px; width:148px; line-height:18px; text-indent:5px; color:#000; text-decoration:none;border:1px solid #ff8d06;}
