Our test environment has been refresh to have all of the same content and data as production. One of the items I noticed is that when we click on one of the links instead of going to the test site if goes to production.

At the bottom of the screen is seems to be call a JavaScript

I am not a SharePoint experts by a long shot and all of the article I have read so far had stated how to added a webpart to do this but my question is how do I update what is already there???

What is this "link" is it a list of links in a list webpart?
If so then navigate to the list and change the URLs.
Is it part of some text on a page?
If so then put the page into edit mode and adjust the link.

In your question title you mention a drop down?
Do you mean users can make a selection from a drop down, click a button and then be taken to a new page based on their selection?

If so, then again put the page into edit mode (or better still open in sharepoint designer) and look for a javascript function that performs this action. My guess is that there will be an array somewhere that matches up the drop down selection with a URL.

At the very least open the page in edit and do a "find" for the url

Ok for the lack for information due to lack of knownledge.

When users goes to the main sharepoint site. There is a is a title bar when users hover over drop down and then lets users click on a " link" for lack of a better work that will take them to that location.

I have notice when I click this link at the bottom of the page I see reference to a javascript redirect...

I have not idea if this is using a webpart or list....

ok so we are either talking about the top link bar or someone has created a custom menu.

Go to site settings and under navigation look for top link bar.
Do you see your navigation items in there? If so, can you edit them and change the url to suit?
