It doesn't work good on Mozilla Firefox browser. It shows menu properly but there is a problem with normal navigation.
The problem is with paths. I put the main js file in "menu" folder and I also have few folders with many html files in them.
For path I use the following "file:/(direct path to specific html file)". It works fine with IE and Google, but Mozilla/Firefox doesn't show the menu.
I tried also to use prefix "file:/" but it also doesn't show the cascading drop down menu on Mozilla/Firefox.
Is there any way to solve this problem?
Thank you for your answer.
A: It is not correct to add "file:/" in the link field.
You should write:
You can try also to write links in the following way:
But I don't think that this will help you.
This is a feature of Firefox browser, Opera and Safari. These browsers cannot determine the root folder ofthe website (D:\ in the examples below) on a local machine (as IE and Google Chrome).
IE: D:\html\other\page.html (works)
Opera: file://localhost/html/other/page.html (link doesn't work)
Google Chrome: file:///D:/html/other/page.html (works)
Safari: file:///html/other/page.html (link doesn't work)
Firefox: file:///html/other/page.html (link doesn't work)
You use relative paths (and your folders have several embedded folders), so your links won'twork correctly in Firefox, Opera and Safari. The reason is not in the menu. Standard linkswon't work too.
So I think that the unique solution in your case is to move ALL link files (1.html,2.html, a.html ...) into the same folder with your index.html file.

A: It's a feature of the browser. It creates different cookies for eachsubdirectory.The only way is to place all your pages in the one directory.
