View Full Version : Js Slider Menu help

06-18-2009, 07:48 PM
Ive decided to go with the slider menu for a site Im building. The menu looks fine in firefox but in safari and IE its displaying a "?" on the drop down, as if there is a missing image. I don't understand why, since there are no images in the menu... Here it is, any help will be greatly appreciated!

it's typical IE security. sometimes when you preview in IE and there is a script add on or whatever it displays a little warning message that says: "To help protect your security, ................. i think that could be the issue in IE. click on that message and select allow blocked content n c it makes any changes.

Thanks for the reply. Im on a mac and dont have IE. Ive been using browsershots.org to preview. The "?" appears in safari also. I dont understand why it is showing a missing image. :confused:

Found it! There was a strange img tag in the .js (which is mostly gibberish to me). deleted it and the problem is gone. Thanks again for the reply majickpower.
