Dropdown menu Firefox bug

found a bug(?) in Firefox
 In some cases there is a high gap at the top of the multicolumn dropdown menu. Meanwhile in chrome and other main browsers it seems to be OK. Are you aware of this issue? Can I fix it somehow? Coud you help me, please?

It took me all morning to investigate on your drop down menu, and finally I caught the culprit :-) 

In your style_beach.css, you have specified :
body { letter-spacing:0.005cm; }
I don't know why FireFox failed to apply it properly to the drop down menu, and get the high gap in the drop down.
It seems other browsers are all good with it.

Solutions: the first option is to remove the letter-spacing setting in your style_beach.css, and the second option(recommended) is to add a normal letter-spacing to the #ddmenu in the ddmenu.css:
#ddmenu { letter-spacing: normal;}

BTW, I notice that FireFox is getting worse and worse in supporting JavaScrit animation. If you don't like the sluggish menu animation in Firefox, you can set the effect as "none" in the ddmenu.js script.

I found an issue also in IE 8 in Win XP: 
Main menu items are vertivally listed instead of a horizontal list. In all the other configurations there is no any problem, only in IE under XP.
It may also come back to my specific css, but could you also give me a suggestion where to find the solution, please???

I opened your site with IE 7 under Win XP and didn't see any issue, but in IE8 you got the main menu items vertically aligned. I checked your code and found your page has two lines that force the IE8 to go back to IE7 standard. That makes the CSS { display: inline-block; } not working anymore.
The two lines in your page that cause the problems are:
<meta content='IE=EmulateIE7' http-equiv='X-UA-Compatible'/> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7"/>


1. Remove the two lines (recommended);

or 2. Just under the menu's CSS link: <link href="ddmenu/ddmenu.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />, add the conditional comments as below (It must be after the CSS link):
<!--[if lt IE 8]> <style type="text/css"> #ddmenu li {display:inline;} </style> <![endif]-->

I took out IE7 emulation and it solved the dropdown menu issue as well as the mentioned content slider error. THANK YOU!

Check for any conflicting CSS styles: Make sure that there are no conflicting CSS styles that are causing the gap to appear. You can use the browser's developer tools to inspect the styles applied to the menu and see if any of them are causing the issue.

  1. Check your CSS styles: Make sure that your dropdown menu has the correct position, display, and z-index styles. Also, check if any other styles are affecting the spacing of the dropdown menu.

Ensure that you are using the latest version of Firefox. Different browser versions may have different rendering behaviors, and updating your browser could potentially resolve the issue.

Clearing your browser cache can help resolve issues caused by cached or outdated files. Go to Firefox's settings, find the Privacy & Security section, and look for the option to clear your browsing data. Make sure to select "Cached Web Content" or similar options.

Browser extensions can sometimes interfere with the display of websites. Temporarily disable any extensions you have installed and see if the issue persists.

If the issue persists, you can try using browser-specific CSS rules targeted only at Firefox to adjust the positioning of the dropdown menu. You can use CSS media queries with the "-moz-" prefix to target Firefox specifically.

Browser extensions or add-ons could be causing conflicts. Try disabling all your extensions and see if the dropdown menu issue persists. If the issue is resolved, you can enable them one by one to identify the problematic extension.
