Original ticket http://trac.elgg.org/ticket/3772 on 41682775-11-13 by trac user illifly, assigned to unknown.

Elgg version: 1.8 Beta

On the mainmenu in 1.8 the more link dont expand on mouseover on IE9. The "more" link is also not clickable, so user with IE9 cant go to this items which are listed under "more"!
I used IE9 Version 9.0.8112.16421 in german.

I changed the "more" anchor tag on a test install to use a # for the href. We could do that or add some CSS so that the cursor looks like it is a menu.

I also tweaked the CSS and got the more menu to work on IE8 without javascript. I was not able to get it to work on IE7.

I spent hours trying to get the hover dropdown to work in IE7--IE8 and 9 were working okay. That's which is why I eventually gave up and used JS. With the amount of frustration I encountered getting it to work in IE7, I wouldn't mind using JS + CSS for IE7 only.

The problem, as I vaguely remember it, is IE7's hover is broken and loses focus on lists. You can't make the list elements fill the entire element box, so the browser thinks it's losing hover focus on the list and so kills the displaying markup.
