    I use firefox 0.8 on my XP Pro SP2 RC1 machine. I really prefer it over IE.
    However, there are websites where the menus don't work, where they do in IE.
    They also don't work in Netscape 7.1 so I guess it's a mozilla issue. I'm no
    computer guy so I really can't describe the problem exhaustively. Under
    firefox or netscape, I get is a "javascript:void("):" message in the status
    bar whenever I do a mouseover over the menus I want opened. In IE, doing
    this gets me to the new page.

    Another question(s). Which java virtual machine does firefox use? I have Sun
    java 1.4.02_04 installed in my PC but there is no choice for firefox in the
    Browser settings tab. The "Mozilla 1.1 or later" box can't be checked
    either. The applet returns a "Unable to change Browser Settings" error.
    Happens even when I reinstalled firefox after the Sun java installation and
    vice versa.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think not, it's probably a web page issue. They have most likely
    written it specifically for IE. Take a look at www.gis.com, it's the
    same thing there. The left hand (blue) menus should fall out when
    clicked. They don't using Firefox.

    Complain about it to the author, some listen, some don't. The web should
    be accessible to all, no matter what browser you use.
