Dropdown Won't Stay Open in IE

We've coded a menu with one dropdown item.  It's the " Eras" link at the top-right of the page.

We had to use position:fixed in order to display the menu in IE8+ on PCs. However, this creates another issue, which is that they won't stay open when hovered.

Thank you for any clues!

I'm not seeing a problem... works in FF, Chrome and IE10.

Thanks, COBOLdinosaur.  Did you look on a Mac?  We're getting this bug on a PC on IE8 & IE9.

Try using :
<meta content="IE=edge,chrome=1" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" />

Instead of:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

I am unclear why you would need to use position:fixed for a simple dropdown menu, and certainly having anything in IE try to occupy the same space as a dynamic effect is always a challenge.
