Select Box Form Element Bug in Navigation Div Menu

I'm using a div menu (MegaMenu) that when you hover over the anchor tag CSS tells the underlying div to change its left attribute to 0px thus showing the menu. (Its -9999px by default which pushes it off page)

I wanted to include a drop down select box within the menu for a search system we've implemented. The form/select boxes work fine in all browsers except IE. In IE when you click on the select drop down box and begin to scroll down the list the div assumes you're no longer hovering over it, but rather the select box. The whole menu then disappears.

I need the form drop down box to behave like its part of that menu in IE7-8 so the menu doesn't disappear before something is selected.

Well that answered my question. Weird huh? If you ujse the keyboard by tabbing to the select boxes you can change them with arrow keys and the menu dropdown stays on screen. Only if you click on the select boxes everything dissapears apart from the dropdown options. I don't see anything wrong in your code but let's see if someone else can spot any errors. Quick question. Why do you have the menu titles as links?

Can you post your code? Is the selectbox totally inside the menu div?

I've pulled the CSS and its available right in the source for that page. If you highlight over End Mills on the top bar you'll see the select pulldowns I'm talking about.

Yeah, I was a bit confused myself. :)

They were left as links in the event they wanted them linking to a "parent page". I could take them out now as we are no longer going in that direction. Good call.
