Solution:

Press the Esc key, and then choose File > Open or File > Save As.

If the Open or Save As dialog’s position is not reset, then continue with the following solutions.

IE hover bug SOLVED!

Comments Off | This entry was posted on Jul 09 2007

“In the page listed below, a two part horizontal menu is displayed, indented
from the left. The first part of the menu is left justified and the second
part is right justified. It looks correct in both IE6 and FireFox…. until
you move your mouse over one of the left hand links. Then, in IE6, the
change in background color causes a reflow. This causes the NavContainer div
to expand, pushing the right hand menu item off the page. Refreshing or
resizing the page gets it redrawn correctly.

I’ve read about various hover bugs in IE, but I could do with some pointers
as to which may be causing my problem and if there is a workaround.”

This is the result of my search term “IE hover bug”. I got thousands like them. But no where the answer to solve the problem. And I really needed a quick solutions. The clients need it As Soon As Possible. The reporters were waiting for the release and the the release was waiting for the solve of this bug.

I found a quick & tiny solution for the problem.

Just add “width:80%;” at MainBody ID. ( the % of width may be 1-100)

It solves the hover problem at IE. It also looks cool at Firefox.

There is another way to solve the problem at IE only. But causes the menu items bring left together at Firefox.

Just add “float:left;” at MainBody ID insted of “width:80%”.
