While attempting to implement a Suckerfish dropdown recently I ran across a problem that causes the menu do not function properly in IE 7. Basically, if you change focus within the browser then move back across the dropdowns, the menus stick in place on the screen.

With Internet Explorer 7 (IE7), Microsoft has provided the ability to create and use IE specific add-ons to enhance the browser’s functionality.

That being said, there are numerous free IE7 add-ons that can increase productivity and make the IE7 browsing experience more pleasurable. (more…)
