leandesign.com navigation bar not loading. View in different browser to see the proper page. This is happening on MANY sites that have been designed for clients.

A prompt response would be great!

That looks like a victim of the user agent sniffing change that changed the Gecko part in the user agent to Gecko/17.0 instead of Gecko/20100101 that previous Firefox versions have.
This change should be reverted in a Firefox 17.0.1 release, so you will have to wait for that.

Quote: We're planning a FF17.0.1 and 17.0.1esr for these changes, to be released (unthrottled) on Friday

It works in the current Aurora build that already has this change (for some reason Nightly doesn't have it).

Found a workaround in this bug report by creating a special override pref (there seem to be a lot of them)

You probably need to update your Sothink DHTML Menu software. You are using version 6.6.60802 from 2006. The current version is 9.7.943 and your upgrade price from version 6 is $39: http://www.sothink.com/product/dhtmlmenu/upgrade.htm
