I have certain dropdownlist controls on my site and for some reason the dropdownlists raise up in IE but not in FireFox.  I do not set them to raise up, they should drop down.  They display correctly in FireFox but having raise up problem in IE.  Would that be possible they are affected by the CSS?

They are not Telerik controls and the site is not a public site so I can't really show the pages.  I know this would be difficult to know what's going on without seeing it.

Take a look at this thread : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/ASP.NET/Q_26815389.html

The reason it is going up is because IE thinks there is not enough space down.  Unfortunately, there is no attributes or properties that can be set to force a raise down.

As to why it works in FF and not IE, well, they are different browsers and they are not interpreting html exactly the same, causing these weird issues.

The reason that I ask is that Telerik controls has a property that controls this.  This may be true in other third party controls.  Have you checked to see if it's a page size or CSS issue?
