jQuery - superfish menu - sfTimer error.

I am using jQuery's "superfish" for the menu on my website

While debugging I notice that I get these errors as I hover over the menu items:

sftimer
Website URL:  http://www.utahkidsfoundation.com


The error does not seem to happen for top menu items that don't have sub items.  It seems to happen onEnter and onExit (hovering over a menu item then leaving).

I just need some help debugging.


Here is the raw HTML that superfish converts into the menu:

<ul id="ukfmenu" class="sf-menu sf-js-enabled sf-arrows" style="padding-left:166px;padding-top:28px;font-family: Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif, sans-serif;font-size:15px;font-weight:bold;">

Update:

The error goes away if I remove this class from the HTML markup:

sf-js-enabled

But I still don't know what is wrong.

joeldbirch commented on 16 Jul 2013 :
I've found that the cause of this is that you should not be adding the sf-js-enabled sf-arrows classes to the HTML. Superfish needs to add those dynamically as it initialises. If they are present prior to Superfish initialisation then chaos ensues.
