Description

18 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-win4lin i686)
BuildID:    

There are a set of pull down menus just below "The Times" banner that
display in Netscape 4.75 but not in any Mozilla based brouser. I've tried
Mozilla, Netscape 6, Galeon, and Nautilus. Clearly the Mozilla
rendering engine is missing something.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Goto http://www.thetimes.co.uk in Mozilla
2.Goto http://www.thetimes.co.uk in Netscape 4.75
3.Compare

Actual Results:  Netscape 4.75 displays the menus, Mozilla and it's kin do not.

The site uses document.all and document.layers which are not and will never be 
supported by Mozilla. Could you please contact the webmaster to tell them their 
site is not standards compliant?
Thank you

contacted them via webform
Whiteboard: [contact]
Moving to new component "West Europe".  European component is being removed.

Summary: Pull down menus don't display → thetimes.co.uk - Pull down menus don't display
They changes their layout. dhtml menus are gone, but:

if (document.all)
{
  n=0;
  ie=1;
  fShow="visible";
  fHide="hidden";
  styleClass="clsMenuItemIE";
}
else if (document.layers)
{
  n=1;
  ie=0;
  fShow="show";
  fHide="hide";
  styleClass="clsMenuItemNS";

However, css seems to work. 
that code is nowhere used, so no problem.
