Hi all,

I am working on a website at the moment with a fair bit of Spry content. It all works fine in both IE and Firefox, however, in IE my Accordion flickers and the pictures within the panels seems to flash on and off when the panel is closed/changed. This is a lot easier to explain through visualisation so if you could go to the link below and click on the "Available Support" tab then you will see what I mean with the Accordion issue that I am having.

Would be much appreciated if anyone could have a look in both IE and Firefox to see the difference.

Many thanks,
Will

EDIT: OK, what is actually happening is that when I open one panel (and another panel closes automatically), the panel which is closing pops open again automatically directly after it closes and then pops back closed again! Very strange, but does anybody know how to stop this from happening??

I've never used Spry but I have used jquery accordion and found pretty much the same thing with IE7. I never got it right and abandoned it for a more conventional site. Sorry couldn't be any more help than that.

Thanks for your reply. The only solution I can see at the moment is to set the animation to false, which stops the jerking about but I do prefer it with the sliding motion!

Cheers

I'm not sure but have you looked to see if you can use a conditional statement to switch off the animation in IE7 only? That would be better because it works well in FF and Chrome.
