Fire (& Waterfox) do not work correctly on www.ba.com (british Airways) Website
When the British Airways website is loaded there are various menu options presented along the top of the window ('Flights & Holiday' 'Manage my bookings', 'Information', Executive Club' etc:,) - by running a mouse over (or clicking) these headings multiple dark blue drop down lists with multiple options SHOULD appear - when using Firefox or Waterfox they don't.
These drop-down menus simply do not appear in either Firefox or Waterfox and, rather bizarrely, the menu headings do nothing if you click them thus making the website un-navigable forcing the use of another browser (every other browser I have works fine!).
I have tried various permutations of options including 'allowing' pop-ups on the Ba website but nothing works.
What am I doing wrong or how can I make the Mozilla browsers work properly on this website?

Do mouseover-triggered scripts run for you on other sites?
Does your computer have a touch screen? Some users with touch screen have found sites where hovering does not work normally (by normally, I mean the way non-touch displays work). Here's a thread on that: mouse hover drop down menu not shown.
Please update to the current Firefox 33.1.1 release.
- Help > About Firefox
The Firefox version that you currently run is no longer supported with security updates.
- It is important to update Firefox and add-ons to the latest version to get all security fixes.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
- Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

No it didn't sort out the problem as I had already checked that and in both my desktop and laptop the flag is set to 0 already - this problem affects BOTH my desktop & laptop (both are Windows 7 64 bit machines - Desktop runs 7 Ultimate, Laptop runs 7 Pro) and neither are touch screens.
I have now downloaded, installed then tested a total of 9 other browsers (including the Maxthon Cloud browser which is many times faster than any other browser I have ever tried!) and in ALL of them the drop-down menus work perfectly so, in my opinion, it is definitely a Firefox/Waterfox coding problem as drop down menus don't work on either of these browsers on any of my computers and I see that there is quite a bit of chatter about this particular Mozilla problem scattered around the various internet communities.
I'm not using Firefox - I am currently using Waterfox
Yes - it was the first thing I did!
I didn't post the question in the forum until I had tried everything I know to try to make it work properly.
In fact I run very few Extensions/Addons as, in my experience/opinion they only slow everything down!
I have come to the reluctant conclusion that it is probably simpler just to use a browser that works properly when trying to book a flight on the BA website rather than spend the time and (currently rather fruitless) effort to make Waterfox/Firefox work with drop-down menus in the BA (and other) websites.
