Hi all,
I recently downloaded the firefox browser and went to view my website. It works fine in IE but in firefox it is a messed up.

I have mouseover links for the navigation and then popouttext for submenus.

The popouttext is not "popping out" instead it is just over the orignal navigation and will not work.

Could there be something wrong with this that is not compatible with firefox? Or does any one have any tips or experiance with this problem. (by the way, I am using dreamweaver 4.0)

<script language="JavaScript1.2" src="popouttext.js">
<script language="JavaScript1.2">

I like firefox and I know a lot more people are using it.

Please let me know what other info I need to supply.

(sorry my last post had my url and I dont think I was supposed to do that. I guess someone can email me or message me if you want to see it.)

This method of specifying scripts is outdated and invalid. Your script should instead look like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="popouttext.js">

I imagine the script is still working in Firefox, but the script is probably not laying out the elements correctly. It's hard to say without seeing some code.

This is probably a question for the JavaScript forum, not the HTML and Browsers forum.
