Hey guys,

I'm having some issues with the visited link hover color on my drop down menu. It only happens in IE and Firefox.

Here's a link to my site:

What other Custom CSS do you have (other than what navigation code you posted above)? The white is coming from somewhere (either other CSS or a color setting).

Here's all the custom code I've cobbled together. It may be kind of sloppy and perhaps in some places redundant. I'm not a coder. My apologies. Thanks for your help though.

Hi Jamie,

From what I can see the cause is the padding in this code, when I changed it from 3px to 0px, the error was gone.

It's quite difficult to change this on the fly, but try this and let me know if this resolves the issue:

That does resolve the different color on the padding when hovering over it. But is there a better way to add some breathing room to the navs in the dropdown? That's why i added that padding. Also the white upon clicking still occurs. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

Hi Jamie,

You could give this a try, remove the 3px padding you have and then have a play about with the padding in the code below:

Let me know if this worked or not.

That did the trick! You are a gentleman and a scholar, Danny. Thanks, Catrina, for your help too. Cheers.
