...not sure if this is a result of the Event Handler issue that I read about in
the .8.1 user notes, but when you visit CDW's site, the home page has a
javascript navigation menu for each of its major product categories (hardware,
software, networking, etc.). Typically, when you roll your mouse over said
items, a menu will drop down which lists all the relevant sub-categories. Works
in IE 5 for Mac but does not seem to work in Mozilla (2001040309). If you click
the menus, you are taken a static HTML page with the sub-cats, so I've presume
this to be minor, but still worthy of reporting to you guys.
The page uses SetMenu to show the menus:

	function setMenu(menuHeaderID,menuID)
		var top = 0;
		var left = 0;
		var currentEle;
                     // do things

Since document.all is only supported by IE, this does not work in Mozilla or

Over to evangelism.  How nice of the site to go out of its way not to work with us.

if it's any consolation, their Shopping Cart works properly with Mozilla.  My
company is a corporate client with them and they fixed it "for me" about a year
ago.  And, I don't think we're prevented from reaching any areas of the site by
the missing expanding-menus.

I tried with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firebird (Mozilla/5.0
(Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031203 Firebird/0.7+) and
both are working in the same way with the menu.
Probably it was changed some time ago.
I think this bug should be changed as fixed now!

I concur.  I think they responded and use standard coding now.
BUGs 199641 and 230117 are the same.

bug 199641 (no pop-up menus at
bug 230117 (no pop-up menus at 
certainly sound similar to this bug but they might have different

If they are the same, though, then they need to be DUPE'd to this bug and this
bug needs to become more code-specific and less site-specific (since it'll have
3 examples).  Sorry, but I'm not the one to make that call.

In any case, the pop-up menus at definitely work now (Firefox 0.8 on WinXP)
