Description

(tested with Mozilla 0.9.9 on win2k)

This is the homepage for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority,
operators of the Washington, DC Metro subway and bus system (alternate url:
http://www.metroopensdoors.com/ ).

In their most recent redesign of the main page (after the Flash intro), all
navigation functions have been moved to a "dropdown menu" which should appear
under the title banner (and does appear, in Internet Explorer 5.x). In Mozilla,
the menu is not displayed, and no error messages are shown.

From looking at the source this seems to be done with JavaScript, but I don't
have enough knowledge in that area to tell how it works or why it breaks on Mozilla.

I was using the 0.9.9 milestone build, and I also just tried it with build
2002033109, with the same result. I have not changed the user agent string,
which is reported as:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020331

Blandon, I am at a loss why the pages worked for me and not you. 

Do you have javascript enabled? What about your cache settings?

Javascript appeared to be enabled, but I was able to try it on another machine
and it worked. Afterward, I disabled and re-enabled all the Javascript functions
on the first machine and it worked on that one as well. So it was either user
error or some other problem with the prefs on that machine... anyway, thanks for
checking it out.
